The majority of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) live at home with their families, and this is particularly true for adults with IDD who are Black or Latino. This has implications for the health of family caregivers, especially compared to non-caregivers. Also, adults with IDD who are either Black or Latino often have worse health outcomes compared to their White counterparts and compared to Black and Latino adults in the general population. In this webinar recorded on Thursday, September 22, Dr. Sandra Magaña and Miguel Morales presented research on health outcomes of African American and Latino parental caregivers and on racial and ethnic disparities on health outcomes among adults with IDD. They discussed policy and community based interventions to address these disparities with a focus on how agencies serving IDD can address the health of families of persons with IDD.
