Living with a Disability During the Covid-19 Pandemic

April 13 and 14 | 11:30am-12:30pm EST

The Equal Access in Science and Medicine committee invites you to attend a trainee panel that will facilitate discussion about the impact the pandemic has on trainees with disabilities. This event will be held on Tuesday April 13 and Wednesday April 14, 11:30am-12:30pm via Zoom.

A GSA survey suggested 25% of students in the SOM identify as having a disability, mental health disorder, or chronic illness.  Therefore, a large proportion of trainees are likely experiencing new challenges due to the pandemic. With the support of the “JH Needs U” COVID-19 Wellbeing initiative, the Equal Access in Science and Medicine committee aims to increase support for trainees with disabilities by providing them a space to share their unique experiences and perspectives with members of the Hopkins community.

The two discussions will be moderated by Dr. Bonnielin Swenor, Director of the Disability Health Research Center.

Live captioning (CART) will be provided. For other disability-related accommodations, please contact eavery3@jhmi.edu.

Please register in advance!
