Health Matters

In partnership with the Kentucky Division of Developmental Disabilities and the HealthMatters Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago, HDI’s Health & Wellness Initiative has implemented a statewide scale-up of the HealthMatters: Exercise and Nutrition Health Education Curriculum.  The aim is to improve the health of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities resulting in increased opportunities and knowledge that positively impact health outcomes.  Successful programming efforts have been established across the state with resources on best practices and lessons learned for other organizations wanting to implement the health promotion curriculum.
