In this webinar Susan Parish, Director of the Lurie Institute for Disability Policy at The Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University, will be reviewing the Women Be Healthy project and test results. Women Be Healthy offers classes and resources for women with ID and their health professionals.  These resources help women learn how to better express their health concerns to their physician and to be more prepared and informed about their health and body.  Susan will discuss the prevalence of cervical and breast cancer screening in women with ID and why it is so important.  Barriers to this type of care will also be given along with information regarding the significant racial disparities in mammography for women with ID.
