  • 1-31 Temple Event Disability Identities

    Thursday, January 31, 2019
    12 PM - 1 PM
    Lewis Katz School of Medicine (LKSOM) 319*

    Lunch provided, BYO drinks.

    Registration

    Please join our guest speaker, Emily Ladau, as she kicks off our new speaker series with a conversation about disability as an identity. Through her work as a writer (published in outlets including the New York Times, HuffPost, Salon, and Vice), speaker, and Editor in Chief of the Rooted in Rights Blog, Emily's goal is to amplify authentic disability narratives to foster action through open communication.

    "If we want the world to be accessible to people with all types of disabilities, we must make the disability experience accessible to the world." - Emily Ladau

    Emily will lead a frank dialogue about disability, focused on reconciling the concepts of diagnosis and identity, by sharing her lived experience. She will cover topics including etiquette, the medical complex, and how doctors can build a positive connection with patients that have disabilities, ultimately supporting a holistic approach to care and well-being.

    The lecture is part of the Every Body: Disability Speaker Series, bringing first-person voices and experience from persons with disabilities to future and current practitioners.

    * The Lewis Katz School of Medicine is located at 3500 North Broad Street. Room 319 is an accessible space. Requests for accommodations must be made two weeks prior to the specific lecture. To request accommodations, or for more information, please contact Kate.Fialkowski@temple.edu.

    The Every Body series is being funded through a grant from Temple University's Presidential Humanities and Arts Research Program Grant. Emily Ladau's talk is co-sponsored by the LKSOM Medical.
