This is the second webinar in the eight-part series “Strategies for the Implementation of Disability-Competent Care”.

This webinar explores the experience of living with a disability. Our presenters introduce this experience through the use of Healthcare Stories from the Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund (DREDF).
