Partnerships

The Disability and Health Program (DHP) helps partners by providing surveillance data on persons with disabilities, providing resources and materials on the needs of persons with disabilities, assisting with fielding surveys or other data collection, and connecting partners with other organizations. If you are interested in becoming a DHP Partner, you can do so through membership into our Disability Community Planning Group (DCPG) by contacting Claudia Friedel at ctamayo@phhp.ufl.edu
