1 out of 5 individuals are living with a diagnosed disability in the US. An unknown number of people struggle with the same challenges as those with disabilities, but do not have a diagnosis. People with and without diagnoses have overcome their challenges with the help of technology, innovative ideas, emerging research and experience sharing. Join us as we explore a variety of topics including health, inclusion, advocacy, technological breakthroughs, interpersonal support, personal transformation, developing meaningful relationships and finding one’s place in society.
