Health Promotion

Nós acreditamos em isaúde inclusiva

Inclusive health means people with IDD are able to take full advantage of the same health programs and services available to people who do not have IDD. People with IDD can face significant challenges in accessing quality health care. They may also have difficulties finding opportunities that promote fitness and wellness, resulting in pronounced health disparities and reduced life expectancy.  

ACA/NY  is committed to promoting inclusive health for its Members. Here are some resources that can help Members and their families lead healthy lives. 

Clínica Excelência clínica

The ACA/NY clinical team works with a variety of providers to ensure that all Members receive the services they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and solid wellbeing through nutrition, behavioral health, and exercise.

“Wellness includes all aspects of your life – your body, your mind, relationships, work, and more.”

- Dr. Jean Jacobson, Vice-Presidente de Serviços Clínicos
