About Us

Our series Diagnosed provides an opportunity to monitor the Utah healthcare pulse - the perceptions, beliefs, research and opportunities. Most importantly, this program provides a forum to generate an understanding of the many ways in which healthcare impacts our lives and communities. The series will air on Utah Public Radio during NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Each month we will dissect a different aspect of healthcare in Utah. Topics will include Utah's emergency medical technicians, rural healthcare and adaptive technology, and the morals and ethics of dying. Support for Diagnosed has been provided in part by our members and Intermountain Healthcare, a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 23 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with close to 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group under the name SelectHealth, and other medical services. Details found here.

Diagnosed: Employing People With Disabilities

We’ve heard a lot about the booming economy, and it’s true the employment rate has risen, for both people with and without disabilities.
