3rd Annual U-M CDHW Disability Research Symposium

9:00 am TO 4:00 pm

Registration link: BIT.LY/CDHW2022

The Center for Disability Health and Wellness at the University of Michigan developed this event to showcase the talented individuals conducting research on disability-related issues from across U-M schools and departments. Equally important, we hope to facilitate networking and discussion on how the research either is being used or can be used to facilitate solutions related to health, functioning, participation, and quality of life for those living with disabilities. 

During the symposium, presenters will have 10 minutes to provide a TEDx-style talk or research-style presentation focusing on either an overall vision of their research or the results of a specific study or project. Previously, presenters included students, trainees, staff, and faculty members. The review committee will group selected presentations based on identified themes. Breakout groups will be used to facilitate discussion on the importance of the research and how it can be applied in clinical and community settings to enhance outcomes.
