Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, Docs with Disabilities Initiative, American Association of Colleges of Nursing, and Johns Hopkins University Disability Health Research Center will partner to host a Free three-part webinar series on exploring the barriers to inclusion for nurses with disabilities. The series will cover removing admissions barriers for nurses with disabilities, and the role that nursing faculty play in addressing accommodations in HPE settings. Each webinar will build upon the last to highlight barriers and facilitators for nurses with disabilities and will have a new moderator and speaker panel for each topic as well.
