Join us for Speak for Yourself presents “What Matters to You?: A Guide to Patient-Centered Research for People With Disabilities.”

When: January 18, 2017 at 2:00 pm

This webinar will explore how people with disabilities can advocate for their own health needs in a way that centers the focus on what is important to the individual. Covering a variety of topics to help you navigate the sometimes tricky world of health care, topics covered will include: steps to being a self-advocate and advocating for your health needs, building a support network, and a look at the health and disability experience. This webinar will give participants the tools they need to put those steps into action to make their voices heard in a medical and/or research setting.*
