This first installment of HDI’s health & wellness newsletter may be the only one so far, but it still offers a great deal of information on a variety of important topics. The development of this newsletter came at the response of the May 6, 2014 CDC launch of a new initiative focused on health disparities for individuals with disabilities as the disparities for this population are at much higher rates of obesity, inactivity, poor nutrition, and tobacco use, just to name a few. Check out the full newsletter for more information.
