The Kansas Disability and Health Program is a partnership of three University of Kansas research centers: the Institute for Health and Disability Policy Studies, the Research and Training Center on Independent Living, and the Kansas University Center on Developmental Disabilities. All are part of KU's Life Span Institute. The program is led by Jean Hall, PhD, director of the IHDPS.
The KU staff works with CDC staff members JoAnn Thierry, Team Lead, Disability Policy, Intervention, and Programs Team, and Lisa Sinclair, Project Officer.
