Launch of Included: The Disability Equity Podcast

The Johns Hopkins Disability Health Research Center is launching a new podcast Included: The Disability Equity Podcast. This podcast challenges stereotypes of disability by sharing stories, data, and news that expose inequities and examines the impact of inclusion. Each season of Included digs deep into topics, offering multiple perspectives, and will expand your views of disability. The first season focuses on voting inequities for the disability community and features interviews with local and national experts.
