Kentucky Inclusive Health Summit

The Human Development Institute‘s Kentucky Inclusive Health Collaborative with the Kentucky Division of Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities hosted a Kentucky Inclusive Health Summit on December 1, 2021. This virtual event was a celebratory culmination of Project CHEER. Over the past five years, CHEER educated, empowered, and established partnerships dedicated to addressing the significant health disparities experienced by individuals with disabilities. The Summit welcomed over 100 registrants to learn about project successes and connect with local, state, and national partners committed to inclusive health. The below graphics capture highlights and key themes from the event.  

Our team is working with ImageThink to tag the graphics for increased accessibility. In the meantime, if you are using a screen reader or need support to access this resource, please email

  • Relevant: How will this goal help me reach my long-term goals?
  • Time-Based: When will I start working towards this goal and when will I meet it?
