Hey everyone! Hope you’re all staying safe out there.
My name is Kevin Schaefer, and I’m the Forums Director for this site’s parent company. I have a rare disease called spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), which falls under the MD umbrella. You can read about my life and experiences in my column here.
Since there’s already enough discussion regarding COVID-19 right now, I wanted to share Ralph Yaniz’ latest column with you all. Ralph writes about a critically important topic, which is a call for more action in the area of disability rights. He recounts a less than stellar experience with a disability lawyer, as well as other incidents. Even though our world is on lockdown right now, I think it’s vital that we continue to discuss issues like this that affect our communities.
Do you have any takeaways from this column? Any advice for Ralph?
