Abstract

Disability affects a growing segment of the population of the United States and around the world, in part because the populations of the globe have enjoyed increasing age and decreasing infant mortality (Andresen, Cannell, Akhtar, & Barney, 2010). Public health professionals often have very little exposure to this increasing demographic group in our population during graduate training. With disability prevalence across surveys indicating some 20% of Americans with a disabling condition that limits activities, the health of this heterogeneous group must be included in the public health agenda and as part of public health education.
