Disability and Health Report (click here)
A new report shows nearly one in five (17.8%) Utah adults is living with a disability. Adults with disabilities experience significant differences in their health behaviors and overall health compared with adults without disabilities. People with disabilities are more likely to engage in unhealthy behaviors and experience a higher incidence of chronic health conditions. Many of the health outcomes that persons with disabilities are more likely to experience either contribute to the top causes of death or are one of the leading causes of death in the U.S.

Advocates as Leaders Speakers’ Network (click here)
This is a group of trained speakers with developmental and intellectual disabilities that focus on providing information and experiences related to disability issues, presented through their eyes. Each presentation is designed and presented by self advocates who have expertise in a variety of subjects that impact the lives of people with disabilities. They use their skills to dispel the myths about what people with disabilities truly believe, overcoming life’s challenges, and the opportunities now available to people with disabilities and their families.
