About the Center
The Center for Research on Women with Disabilities promotes, develops, and disseminates information to improve the health and expand the life choices of women with disabilities. It was established in 1993 in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Baylor College of Medicine, under the direction of Margaret A. Nosek, Ph.D.
We invite you to explore and use the wealth of information for women with physical disabilities that we have made available on each of the topics in our A to Z Directory. Please check back regularly as we are constantly updating and expanding this information.
A to Z Directory of Topics
The health related topics are available in an A to Z directory list.
In response to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19 ) crisis, we have compiled links to reputable information specifically for people with disabilities about how they can protect their health in these dangerous times. Visit our page on COVID-19 and Disability.
