LightHouse SF in National Council on Disability report

The National Council on Disability, an independent federal agency that advises the President and Congress on disability issues, has released an extensive report calling for sweeping changes in health care for persons with disabilities.

According to NCD Chairperson John R. Vaughn, “NCD undertook this study in 2007 to focus the nation’s attention on the health care disparities experienced by people with disabilities, and to provide information and recommendations that can help to eliminate health care inequities for people with disabilities.“

The LightHouse is proud to be noted in several sections of this report, including a chapter on effective programs and services.
