Organized by the University of Pennsylvania Disability Studies Working Group

“Disability Studies: A History” will bring together activists, scholars, and artists working across different disciplines to reflect on the history of an emerging field, which—since its early activist origins in the 1960s—has gained an institutional presence in academia.

Dr. Edward Elms and Legal Specialist George Powers, J.D. from the Southwest ADA Center will discuss current issues and barriers faced by persons with disabilities in accessing healthcare services and how the ADA may apply in those settings.
