The Center for Accessible Living was awarded a grant from the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky to identify the top 5 unmet healthcare needs of Kentuckians with disabilities. We need and want input from across the state from as many Kentuckians with Disabilities as possible. To accomplish this, we will be holding forums across the state where consumers can give us input into the barriers and situations they face in their community. Surveys will also be utilized to gather additional information.
