Our Lab Mission
The Program for Healthcare Justice is a vibrant team of researchers, graduate students and disability community members led by Dr. Susan Magasi that work together to understand and address health and participation disparities among people with disabilities.
In close partnership with the disability community, we are focusing on research into the use of peer support interventions to promote healthcare access, quality and outcomes for people with disabilities.
A central component of our research mission is the inclusion of people with disabilities in all phases of the research process, from project design and development through dissemination and knowledge translation.
We work on a variety federally funded research studies that seek to understand and address health, healthcare, and participation disparities among people with disabilities.
We want to make sure our research findings and products are available to everyone.
Publication in academic journals is one way to share information about research.
