Welcome from the University of Michigan Center for Disability Health and Wellness!
Our mission is to develop and apply innovative research, clinical, and educational strategies to address inequities in health care access, quality, and outcomes experienced by individuals with physical, sensory, and developmental disabilities across the lifespan.
Our vision is of working in partnership with members of the disability community to ensure that all people, regardless of type or severity of disability, have full access to quality health care and to wellness activities personalized to their background, strengths, and needs.
