Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the UCEDD

As a team of researchers, health and healthcare professionals, disability advocates and educators we value the diversity of the human experience and intersecting identities. We believe that all communities have knowledge and experiences which contribute to our understanding of health, quality of life, and health care for all people. We also do our work recognizing that people with disabilities face many barriers to health and meaningful participation in community. Read the full DEI Statement here.

Four Wheeling Through Life

Jan Staehely

Jan Staehely  -  UCEDD Staff, Communication Consultant and Blogger, writes about her life in her blog Four Wheeling Through Life. "I have a disability called Cerebral Palsy. Since all four of my limbs, plus my speech is affected by the disability, doctors say that I am severely disabled. However, if you ask me, I will tell you that there are people living with more complex disabilities than me."
