The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else.

Throughout the year, celebrate 30 years of progress in access and inclusion.

We have come a long way! But there is always more to be done to ensure equitable access for individuals with disabilities. Please consider a gift to the Disability Section to help us continue our work to promote equity in health and the social determinants of health, support scholarships for students, and increase diversity and inclusion the field of public health.
