    What's it like to not be able to get a mammogram because the machine does not accommodate a wheelchair? What's it like to be a paraplegic and want to have a baby? These are just two of the growing number of daily problems facing the more than 25 million women with disabilities in the United States. Dr. Cassing Hammond, director of family planning and contraception at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University and director of ob/gyn services at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, discusses with host Dr. Lisa Mazzullo the challenge of contraception choices, welcoming these patients to the typical doctor's office, as well as the cutting-edge clinic designed especially for this group of women at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
