New study for teens and young people with intellectual disability

We want to speak to teens and young people with intellectual disability.

We want to know about what you want to learn about

  • genetics
  • health care
  • health care choices

Many people with intellectual disability have told us

Members from the GeneEQUAL team are doing a study about what teens and young adults (up to 28 years of age) with intellectual disability across Australia want to learn about their health and making informed health care choices.

This is because everything we do at GeneEQUAL centres on what matters most to people with intellectual disability, including young people. Please check out details about our study in the flyer below, contact Jennifer if you want to learn more or know a young person keen to join the study, and share this news with your friends and colleagues.
