This year’s Chair’s Forum for the Disability Section of APHA is titled, “The 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act – Looking Back and Looking Forward.” The focus is to discuss how the ADA has impacted the health and wellbeing of people with disabilities. Topics will include: people with disabilities as an unrecognized health disparity population, policies and court decisions that promote the health and participation of people with disabilities, perspectives of people with disabilities on Title II of the ADA, ratification of the “Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities” by the United States, and a Chicago perspective on changes since the passage of the ADA.
