Professional Development for Health Professionals

One in every five American adults lives with a disability. The Kansas Disability and Health Program (DHP) offers trainings for health care providers to enhance their interactions with people with disabilities. Topics include: 

  • Understanding health disparities and the social versus medical model of disability
  • Learning from real-life experiences of people with disabilities
  • Creating an accessible health care environment
  • Navigating Medicaid, Medicare, and employment for people with disabilities

DHP staff members are available to collaborate with organizations to provide tailored presentations at no charge on topics of interest related to working with people who have disabilities. 

A four-session webinar series offered through the KU Area Health Education Center is also available online. There is a $15 fee for each session and CEUs are available for some health professionals. Sessions include case studies, lectures, and videos:
