The Americans with Disabilities Act: Advancements, Challenges, and the Path Forward

Thirty-four years after being signed into the law, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) continues to protect the rights of people with disabilities.

Join us for a panel discussion, performances, and resource tables that reflect on the achievements and advancements made since ADA’s enactment, explore its profound impact on the lives of individuals with disabilities, and address ongoing challenges and areas for improvement in ensuring equal rights and accessibility.

Moderated by Dr. Thy Huskey, Professor at Washington University School of Medicine in the Division of Neurorehabilitation, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, and a faculty member in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Program. American Sign Language interpretation will be provided by DEAF Inc.
