A new study to address health disparities for adults with intellectual disabilities: Participants needed!

The Longitudinal Health and Intellectual Disability Study (LHIDS)

The University of Illinois at Chicago is conducting a national study on health and health behavior of adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) and is looking for participants. The goal of the project is to generate health knowledge to better assist healthcare providers, researchers, and policymakers in addressing the unique needs of adults with ID.

The study is seeking family members, caregivers, and/or service workers of adults with ID to complete a 15-25 minute survey along with the adult with I/DD, once a year for four years. Participants must be 18 or older and residing in the U.S. To register and learn more about the study, please visit:
