Excerpt

This report presents a national Blueprint to improve the health of persons with mental retardation (MR). The Blueprint identifies problems and solutions proposed by the community of people with MR and those who care about their health. It consists of multiple action steps that were developed by work groups at the Surgeon General's National Conference on Health Disparities and Mental Retardation, December 5-6, 2001, in Washington, DC. The action steps are organized under six broad goals that emerged from Conference discussions and analysis of work group recommendations.
