Disability and Health Journal Issue on "Aging with Disability"
The special issue of the Disability and Health Journal on “Aging with Disability” is now online with a January 2014 publication date. The issue contains 11 articles based on presentations from the 2011 interagency conference on "Aging with Disability" that NIDRR sponsored along with ACL, NIA, and the ICDR. The list of authors reflects a positive step towards "bridging" knowledge between aging and disability. It includes two NIDRR grantees, Tamar Heller and Mitch LaPlante, highly regarded disability medical researchers, along with some of the most notable demographers in the field of gerontology.
