Medical Care for People with Disabilities

Not many people get to do academic research that has such a direct impact on their families. But Jenny Pharr got started looking at the problems disabled people face in securing medical care because her father is a paraplegic. Few primary care physicians have the equipment needed to properly examine the disabled and Pharr's research for the Ph.D. in public health has opened the lid on the problem.
