This grant application is to fund adaptive kayaking events supported by the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor Volunteers-In-Parks program in partnership with Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park. To be held at the Douglas State Forest, Douglas, MA. This grant application is to support individuals with who have assorted disabilities. At these events trained volunteers will assist individuals with disabilities, their caretakers, and their family members with accessing NNLM websites and databases, especially MedLinePlus, to increase their awareness of, and access to, knowledge on health information for people with disabilities. This work is needed because people with disabilities are in poorer health and much less active than their able-bodied peers.
