Health Promotion Campaign for Women with Physical Limitations


The Center for Research on Women with Disabilities conducted a health promotion campaign for women with disabilities, funded by the Houston Endowment, Inc. As part of this campaign, we created this website, developed materials on health promotion topics of interest to women with disabilities, participated in health fairs throughout the Houston area, and reached 15,000 members of our intended audiences--women with physical disabilities and those who care about them.

These materials are available in text-only versions on this web site plus links to full-color PDF files. We welcome anyone, especially women with disabilities and those working in the fields of independent living, rehabilitation, disability services, health care, and health promotion, to make free and frequent use of this information. All of these materials may be reprinted and distributed without charge. There is no need to ask our permission to use these documents; however, we do ask that you indicate our authorship.
