Disability Health, Intersectionality + All of Us

Our life experiences are tied with the spectrum of identities we hold. 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. In this second conversation in the Disability & Health Webinar series, we will be hosting a broad conversation about disability intersectionality when it comes to health. Join us for a conversation about precision medicine and the barriers that people face to accessing the care and support they need.
