Services for Students with Disabilities

Over 20% of individuals report a disability. These people often struggle with health inequities and poor health care access. Many of these barriers are addressable through simple steps.  Providing an avenue for patients to communicate accessibility challenges and request accommodations prior to their appointment will help these individuals obtain their COVID-19 tests and vaccines equitably upon arrival.
