The summit will highlight the many challenges facing women with disabilities in obtaining appropriate healthcare, and will explore ways that health professionals and facilities can overcome these barriers to provide the best possible care. National experts will outline programs and paradigms that have been successful in improving access to care for people with disabilities, including projects that focus on educating health care professionals about these issues. The meeting's outcome will be a white paper identifying recommended actions in addressing the health care challenges faced by women with disabilities.
