HealthMatters Program is a research-based, field-tested program that's already made a dramatic difference in the lives of participants with disabilities, this proven curriculum shows professionals how to conduct up to 59 one-hour sessions that help people make the best choices about health, exercise, and nutrition.

We will be starting the “
HealthMatters Program Scale-Up: Multi-State Systematic Approach.” This project will examine the challenges to successful replication of the HealthMatters Program intervention, and the conditions and activities that contribute to effective adoption in real-world settings. By implementing this project, we have a unique opportunity to contribute to the larger body of research and science by developing a Scale-Up Logic Model detailing the necessary components to achieve systematic reach and impact among a population that often receives lifelong community based supports and health care services within complex and divers systems across the U.S.
