When was the last time you noticed whether or not a sidewalk had a ramped curb cut for those in wheelchairs? Or if an intersection had a Soundsystem for the visually impaired?
For over 60 million Americans with disabilities, these issues can become an everyday burden when equal access is not a priority for local, state, and federal governments. Worse, it can make the already more difficult aspects of living life even harder for those in that group.
Bob Lujano, Information Specialist for the National Center on Health, Physical Activity, and Disability joins Salud Talks to discuss these issues, and how we all can step up to make life more equitable for his community.
