4th Annual Disability Research Symposium
Presented by the U-M Center for Disability Health and Wellness (CDHW) with funding provided by the IDEAL RRTC and AHEAD-DC RRTC.
Accessibility accommodations supported by the Office for Health Equity and Inclusion (OHEI) at Michigan Medicine.
The Center for Disability Health and Wellness at the University of Michigan developed the U-M CDHW Research Symposium to showcase the talented individuals conducting research on disability-related issues from across U-M schools and departments. Equally important, we hope to facilitate networking and discussion on how the research either is being used or can be used to facilitate solutions related to health, functioning, participation, and quality of life for those living with disabilities.
The Symposium will be presented in two parts. In the morning participants will join a policy-focused training workshop developed by the Center for Health & Research Transformation. In the afternoon, we will welcome Robyn M. Powell, one of the country’s foremost authorities on law and disability. Immediately following, talented researchers from across the Center for Disability Health and Wellness and the University of Michigan will share presentations highlighting the diverse disability research projects.
