About the program

In collaboration with the Oregon Office on Disability and Health, the University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities offers a summer academy for young people with disabilities looking to improve their health, set personal goals, and benefit from a supportive peer environment. Participants will attend a four-day workshop at the OHSU Center for Health and Healing where they will engage in an interactive, activity-filled curriculum.

Your Health, Your Choice is a program for teens and young adults with disabilities based on the Healthy Lifestyles Curriculum, an evidence-based health promotion intervention developed at OHSU. Learn more or become a Healthy Lifestyles trainer.

Registration for the Summer Academy is currently closed.
