Collaborations in the Advancement of Research on Disability (CARD)

The mission of CARD is to enhance the health and quality of life of people with disabilities through research that addresses critical gaps in disability-related knowledge and outreach that engages individuals with disabilities. Consistent with the CHAD Mission, CARD will provide leadership in interdisciplinary disability research, outreach, and engagement to support optimal living with disabilities and facilitate collaboration between campus disability researchers and external disability advocacy, service, and research partners.

If you would like to learn more or become a member of CARD, please reach out to Laura Rice (ricela@illinois.edu).
