UCP Releases “What Matters to You?” Focused on the Healthcare Outcomes of People with Disabilities

The conversation surrounding healthcare has been on everyone’s radar this week. As part of a two-year grant, UCP asked self-advocates in the disability community to share what mattered most to them when it came to their health, and what they would like doctors and health researchers to know about the disability experience, as part of our “Speak for Yourself” initiative.

As we seek to engage more self-advocates in the conversations surrounding health, encourage individuals to take charge of their health, and become more informed about the Patient-Centered Research (PCOR) approach, UCP has been asking the question “What Matters to You [when it comes to your health as an individual with a disability]?” We’ve hosted a webinar, a twitter chat, a photo contest and now we are soon to release a short video.

UCP hopes that this video will serve as tool for those in your communities to take charge of their health outcomes, as well as help spark conversations on self-advocacy and health, and encourage your community to learn more about PCOR.

**Please note that the video is embargoed until May 10th 11:00 am EST.**

Below you will find sample Facebook posts, Tweets, and newsletter blurb/copy to share the video on your social media channels and your networks​.

The video can be viewed here.
