Disability Awareness Week: Film Screening and Student Panel

Get involved with Stetson’s Disability Awareness Week, held Oct. 24 to 30, by attending the highlight event: a film screening and student panel.

On Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m., in Sage 257 Stetson faculty and staff will host a viewing of the documentary “Lives Worth Living,” which explores the history of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) and the continued struggle for full rights for persons with disabilities. After the movie, a student panel will discuss their experiences with disability. Cultural Credit is available.

If you would like to join the student panel to discuss your own experiences with disability, or the experiences of someone close to you, please get in contact with Dr. Melinda Hall at mchall@stetson.edu. You may choose to share thoughts anonymously if you wish.

Also, Saturday, Oct. 24, get involved with the Buddy Walk at Rinker Field at 7 a.m. and 10:45 a.m.! There you will be overseeing games and fun areas for those with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
