NACCHO.ORG: Nothing About Us Without Us: AAHD’s Call to Action
The saying, "Nothing About Us Without Us" has been used in the disability community for many years. It simply means that no decisions should be made regarding people with disabilities without their input. However, when it comes to research, people with disabilities often are still excluded. The American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD) has teamed up with the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) in supporting the All of Us Research Program. This nationwide program is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and aims to increase the participation of historically underrepresented communities in medical research.
