WILL Center to host health care audio conference Sept. 17

The WILL Center will host a free audio conference, “Building Blocks for Accessible Health Care,” from 2 to 3:30 on Tuesday at the WILL Center, at 1 Dreiser Square, west of Third and Cruft streets in Terre Haute.

The conference will feature representatives from the Disabilities Resource Center at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. They will share the structure of their approach to accessibility, lessons learned, basic tools and community partnerships developed to reduce barriers to health care service delivery.

Most people think that health care is accessible to people with disabilities, but barriers in communication, facility access and medical equipment can prevent people with disabilities from getting the care that they need.

The “building blocks” for accessible health care can be used in hospitals, physician offices and outpatient centers.

For further information or to request an accommodation, contact Marcia Jackson at 812-298-9455, or email For information on the audio conference program, visit the ADA-Indiana website at
