With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Library of Congress, and several private foundations, researchers from across the country, clinicians, educators, representative disabled women, and policy makers from federal funding agencies worked together over a two-year period to discuss what is known and what needs to be known about health disparities faced by women with disabilities. They convened in Houston in June 2003 to develop research recommendations. This report summarizes their work.
