HealthMeet: Improving the Health of People with Intellectual Disabilities

The Boggs Center is partnering with The Arc of the United States on its project HealthMeet®, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to improve the health, longevity and quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities. HealthMeet brings together a national network of Arc chapters, disability organizations, public health systems, and other stakeholders to provide free community-based health assessments and follow-up recommendations for people with intellectual disabilities. HealthMeet® also provides training and education for individuals, their families, direct service professionals, medical providers, and medical students and is raising public awareness of health issues that impact people with intellectual disabilities across the country. The Boggs Center is conducting descriptive analyses of results of the HealthMeet® assessments, preparing data briefs describing results of the analyses, and participating on the HealthMeet® National Advisory Committee.
