A health center for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities is opening in Worthington this month, and it’s the first of its kind in Ohio. Boundless Health will offer comprehensive health care for a population that has historically been underserved by the medical community in the U.S. Its integrated approach is one disability advocates hope catches on across the country.

Guests:

  • Patrick Maynard, CEO and President of I Am Boundless and Boundless Health
  • Dr. Matthew Holder, Former President of the American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry
