All are invited to join for the next installment of the UW SMPH symposium series Hot Topics in Public Health, which is titled “A Conversation on Disability Rights.” The event will take place virtually on Thursday, April 21 from 5:30-7 p.m. on YouTube. You do not need a YouTube account to view the event. The event will have live captioning and live ASL interpretation.
The event will feature Judith (Judy) E. Heumann, a nationally-renowned lifelong advocate for the rights of disabled people, and Kristen Joiner, a UW–Madison alumna who is a writer and activist and co-authors books with Judy. The discussion with them will be moderated by William Schwab, MD, professor and vice chair of education in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health. This event is presented in partnership with the Path of Distinction in Public Health.
