On Tuesday, July 26th from 12-1 pm we will host a virtual celebration of the passing of the American with Disabilities Act on its 32nd anniversary. The event will start with a brief look at how advocacy and activism led to policies and culture shifts that have advanced disability inclusion in the U.S. This will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on what is currently happening in this area more broadly and here at Washington University School of Medicine and how individuals can become involved in supporting needed change to reduce stigma and improve accessibility for persons living with disabilities.
Panelists will include:
Kerri Morgan, Ph.D., OTR/L, ATP – Assistant Professor of Occupational Therapy and Neurology
Maggie Heinz – Member of Science and Healthcare Abilities Coalition (SHAC), a student group at WUSM
Matthew Sullivan, Ph.D. – Assistant Director, Disability Support Services
