Disability Health, Intersectionality + All of Us

Wednesday, January 24, 2024
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET
Location: Online

Do you ever wonder how our life experiences are influenced by the spectrum of identities we carry? When it comes to our health, our outcomes are often shaped by gender, LGBTQIA+ status, race and ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. People with disabilities are part of every community, but not all health needs look the same.

On January 24th from 2:00 – 3:30pm ET, join us for a discussion about disability intersectionality when it comes to health. A panel of disability advocates and community members will share about the importance of intersectional health care, and how we can bring about health equity for all. This conversation features Kiana Jackson (New Disabled South), Dr. Kara Ayers (National Center for Disability, Equity and Intersectionality), Keith Jones (SoulTouchin’ Experiences), Shane Lamba (The PRIDE Study), moderated by Theo Braddy (National Council on Independent Living).

This is the second conversation in the 2023-2024 Disability & Health Webinar Series hosted by the Disability Community Engagement Partner Project (DCEPP) at the American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD). Tune in to learn more about how the All of Us Research Program is helping to make intersectional disability health research possible. ASL Interpretation and Closed Captioning (CART) will be provided, and other reasonable accommodations are available upon request by contacting [email protected].
