Adults with disabilities use primary preventive health care services (basic screenings, immunizations, and hevior health counseling) at rates below those recommended by the US Preventive Services Task Force and Healthy People 2010. This projects is to carry out a community-based campaign to increase preventive care knowledge and service use among adults with physical disabilities.
