Please join us at 8:45 am on Monday, January 18th, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, to continue to explore issues at the intersection of disability and race and to discuss the role of healthcare and health care systems in partnering to create change.
Philippa Clarke, Clive D'Souza, and Michelle Meade contribute a chapter titled, “Aging with a Disability” in the recently published book, Public Health Perspectives on Disability: Science, Social Justice, Ethics and Beyond.
