NACDD is proud to share a new video compiling highlights of the project efforts of 10 local communities participating in the NACDD Reaching People with Disabilities through Healthy Communities project. This national pilot project funded by the CDC Disability and Health Branch enables NACDD to partner with five state disability and health grantees, 10 local communities (two from each of the five states), the National Center for Health Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD) and the Lakeshore Foundation to promote making healthy choices the easy choices with a principal focus on disability inclusion.
NACDD is especially thankful for the NCHPAD videography team collaboration in development of the project video, led by Ingrid Pfau, Matt Henton, and Chase Tinnon. The video highlights just some of the great work being done by the local community grantees to make community changes that promote inclusion of people with disabilities so that all community members can better access and participate in healthy eating and physical activity.
