Disability-based Discrimination in Organ Transplantation

Wed, 2 Apr, 2014 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Time Zone: America/New_York
Local Time: Wed, 2 Apr, 2014 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

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.
