Working toward social justice involves everyone in society—including those with physical, developmental, intellectual, and other disabilities. In this program, panelists from Penn’s schools of law, dentistry, and medicine will share how they are addressing the unique needs of individuals with a wide range of differences, increasing awareness and appreciation of their place in our communities, and advocating for compassion and equity.
