The university community is invited to attend the Stanford Medicine Abilities Coalition’s first event, a mixer that will include news on disability initiatives at the medical school and across Stanford, on April 15.

The Stanford Medicine Abilities Coalition will hold its inaugural event, a mixer that will include members of the Medical Students with Disability and Chronic Illness group, at 5:30 p.m. April 15 in Room 308 of the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge.
