The Initiative for Women with Disabilities Elly and Steve Hammerman Health & Wellness Center (IWD) at NYU Langone Medical Center opened the doors to a new 4,200-square-foot facility located at 359 Second Avenue in Manhattan. IWD was established in 1997 in a single medical office within the Hospital for Joint Diseases as one of the only comprehensive, multi-disciplinary health centers in the region specifically designed to provide accessible gynecology, primary care, physical therapy and wellness services for women with physical disabilities. To date, IWD has provided high-quality care for more than 7,000 women and adolescent girls with physical disabilities.
