StanfordMed LIVE Disability Town Hall

Thursday, October 15, 2020

12:00pm - 1:00pm

In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act and October as National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Stanford Medicine Abilities Coalition (SMAC), held for a first of its kind, StanfordMed LIVE event focused on disability. Now more than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic, disabilities, health conditions, and illness impact not only our patients but also all of us, both personally and as members of the Stanford Medicine community. Stanford Medicine leadership shared information, answered questions, and engaged in a roundtable discussion about the state of disability at Stanford and how best to support faculty, staff, and students living with disability and chronic illness.
