The Disability Research Interest Group is composed of health services and policy researchers interested in the coordination, quality improvement, and financing of services, assistive devices, and environmental changes needed for the optimal health and social integration of people in situations of disability. It brings together researchers, policy analysts, persons with disabilities, and educators to increase the impact of good quantitative and qualitative research on disability policy, practice, and professional education in the U.S. and abroad.

Advisory Committee

Each Interest Group (IG) is led by a dedicated group of volunteers who shape the information provided to IG members each year. The Advisory Committee is selected on an annual basis with nominations opening in June of each year. Check out this year’s Disability Research IG Advisory Committee.
