    This was originally developed by Planned Parenthood of San Francisco. Now it is available on-line. This is a good little booklet to download, print and share with your primary care or gyn physician or nurse practitioner:

                            Good Resources for Women with Disabilities

                            I ran across this website and thought it worth sharing with the women of CareCure.

                            http://www.bcm.edu/crowd/

                            The Center for Research on Women with Disabilities (CROWD) at Baylor College of Medicine welcomes you to our website and information resource.

                            Reproductive health
                            Self-esteem
                            Stress management
                            Depression self-management

                              Update

                              Unfortunately the Table Manners resource cited above is no longer valid. Hoping to find it someplace else and will post then.
