Public health professionals have had few opportunities to learn about disability in a public health context. Now Disability and Public Health provides a thorough roadmap to professionals and describes how disability complements a public health context. By promoting an understanding of disability, the book provides a basis for enhancing the success of all of public health initiatives.

“This text will most certainly become a cornerstone for building a public health discipline that will help to develop a more comprehensive approach to understanding the ecology of health disparities for people with disabilities and strategies to improve access to affordable, quality health care.”  Leslie Rubin, M.D., Emory University

“Disability and Public Health is an important and overdue contribution to the core curriculum of disability studies in public health education. With its broad cross-disability and consumer-centric focus, nothing quite like this book of readings has been published, to my knowledge, with a public health
perspective. This is a thought-provoking and enlightening book for students, faculty, administrators, and service providers in public health and for the disability-related clinical professions.” David Braddock, Ph.D., Associate Vice President, University of Colorado System

  • History and culture of disability
