Our next book club selection is Demystifying Disability by Emily Ladau, which is an approachable guide to being a thoughtful, informed ally to disabled people, with actionable steps for what to say and do (and what not to do) and how you can help make the world a more accessible, inclusive place.

A teal background with 6 rows of illustrated people of diverse races, gender identities, body types, and visible/non-apparent disabilities. In the center of the cover is a dark blue box with cream colored text that reads: “Demystifying Disability: What to Know, What to Say, and How to be an Ally.” At the bottom in dark blue text is the author’s name, Emily Ladau.

Working to ensure health professions and science education remain an equal opportunity profession.

The Docs With Disabilities Initiative hosts two podcasts that aim to highlight disability stories and research. Our original series hosted by Drs. Lisa Meeks and Peter Poullos and our newest podcast, Research and Resource Rounds, hosted by Zoey Martin-Lockhart. 


The DocsWithDisabilities team uses research, education, and sharing of stories to drive change in policy and procedure leading to more inclusive educational environments for students with disabilities. We also work to bring the latest data and best practices to stakeholders via our publications.
