    Join us to watch and discuss three films that showcase the first-hand experiences of young people living with various disabilities and chronic illnesses. These documentaries invite us to explore the inner-worlds of non-speaking autistic individuals around the globe, to consider the confusion and social isolation produced by a Chronic Fatigue Syndrome diagnosis, and to witness the long and complex road to recovery from hemorrhagic stroke. Our discussions will involve themes of gender bias in the medical industry, social stigma, and the social constructions of disability and illness.

    Join UREP and CIES for a candid conversation on accessibility in research and other academic endeavors. This event features a panel of Drexel students who will discuss their experiences getting involved with on campus research and navigating the unique challenges of completing research and academic work with, or without, a university accommodation. Our panelists represent a range of visible and invisible disabilities and will provide insight on how their personal experiences shaped their ability to get involved. Attendees will have an opportunity to submit questions and participate in the conversation.
