In the United States, more than 50 million people experience some form of disability, yet public health’s investment in disability has long been inadequate, according to a new APHA book. With its historical emphasis on preventing disability, public health has been slow to recognize disability as a risk factor for other health problems, said the new book, “Disability and Public Health.”
