During the month of September, the Center for Dignity in Healthcare for People with Disabilities will be hosting #WebinarWednesdays, in which they will be presenting recommendations that will help close gaps in healthcare inequities experienced by people with disabilities.
The Center for Dignity is working on identifying and reducing life-limiting healthcare inequities for people with disabilities. These inequities are often rooted in stigma and ableism. The Center has focused their efforts in healthcare inequities within prenatal diagnosis, mental health and suicide prevention, aging and end of life, and organ transplantations.
During September, they will dedicate each Wednesday to hosting a discussion on recommendations to close the gap in each of those areas. ASL Interpreters will be provided. If you need any additional accommodations, please contact Leah Smith.
The Center for Dignity in Healthcare for People with Disabilities is an interdisciplinary coalition of stakeholders, including medical providers, researchers, ethicists, individuals with disabilities, and their family members funded by ACL. The Center’s goal is to identify and reduce life-limiting healthcare inequities faced by people with intellectual and developmental (ID/DD) disabilities. Healthcare inequities are preventable aspects of care that cause people to have worse health outcomes.
