Fighting the Stigma of Disability

Thursday, September 18, 2014
Consumer/New Family

This session will focus on the way society can label people with disabilities and how that can affect you. We will discuss navigating expectations when your disability may not be obvious, coping with personal limitations, redefining what the term “disability” means and the change in how society views bleeding disorders. You will leave this session empowered to accept your disability and create a greater sense of self.
