The New Hampshire Disability and Public Health Project recently released a number of valuable resources, including a new report, video and two fact sheets, please see below for details and links to access each item. Local health departments and partners are strongly encouraged to use these resources as tools to support disability inclusion within the communities they serve.
- The 2017 New Hampshire Disability & Public Health Reportwhich provides information on health disparities experienced by individuals with mobility and cognitive limitations in New Hampshire. There is a short evaluation survey for consumers of the report;
- A 30-minute video, Be Active, Eat Healthy, Have Fun: Promoting the health of people with IDD, created from material presented to the Best Buddies Friendship chapters in response to a request from them to provide information about health disparities experienced by people with IDD. There is also a short evaluation survey for consumers of the video; and
- Two double-sided data briefs concerning the health and wellness of people with intellectual and/or mobility disabilities were created earlier this grant year. The first relates to Health Communication Needs, and the second discusses Diabetes Prevention.
