Ten Great Cities for PWD

According to an article in the Denver Post last week, there are ten great cities for individuals with physical disabilities. They are:

10. Lubbock, Texas
9. Orlando, Florida
8. Winston-Salem, North Carolina
7. Birmingham, Alabama
6. Chicago, Illinois
5. Portland, Oregon
4. Denver, Colorado
3. Reno, Nevada
2. Albuquerque, New Mexico
1. Seattle, Washington

Types of things taken into consideration: Climate, air quality, number of physicians, rehab specialists and centers, accessible fitness and recreation facilities and transit. Age of the cities was also considered as was each city’s spending and eligibility requirements for Medicaid and if a city contained large numbers of people with physical disabilities who were able to get jobs.
