March Webinar Schedule
Disability-based Discrimination in Organ Transplantation
Time: Tuesday, March 25, 2014, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EST
Samantha Crane, Director of Public Policy
Autistic Self Advocacy Network
People with intellectual or developmental disabilities face widespread discrimination when seeking potentially lifesaving organ transplantation. This is often due to the perception that people with I/DD would be unable to comply with post-transplant care or have low “quality of life.” In this webinar, Samantha Crane provides an overview of the history of disability-based discrimination in organ transplantation; covers the laws governing disability discrimination in health care contexts; and discusses ways in which people with disabilities, their family members, and other advocates can help ensure that all people have access to lifesaving care.
