Durham, NH – August 3, 2018.
In New Hampshire (NH), one-in-four adults ages 65 and up have a mobility and/or cognitive disability. This and other findings are highlighted in the 2018 NH Disability & Public Health Report.
Released by the NH Disability & Public Health Project (DPH), this year’s concise report provides information on factors that underlie health inequities experienced by individuals with mobility and cognitive limitations in NH. It also suggests strategies that public health programs can use to be inclusive, visible, and accessible to people with disabilities.
