The Disability and Health Equity Policy Certificate looks at disability policy from a public health perspective.


Designed for advocates and professionals in a variety of fields, the program prepares you for leadership roles in supporting effective and equitable policy development, implementation, and evaluation.

A key benefit of this program is its focus on public health. While most disability policy programs generally focus on education-specific policy, Drexel’s online Certificate in Disability and Health Equity Policy focuses on the impact of disability policy on the larger world. The goal of the program is to help professionals and advocates influence policy that impacts every facet of the lives of those with disabilities.
