Details

How is the rise of the disability pride culture shifting the prevailing norms away from the cured focused model? This discussion will be moderated by a representative of the disability community and feature two people with disabilities: one a bioethicist, and one a disability advocate.

The discussion will cover a wide range of thought-provoking topics including:

  • What is a cure and what is not?
  • How is disability identity affected by a cure?
  • Who is the cure meant to help? (The answer is usually not the person with disability)


There will be time at the end for questions to be asked of the panelists. This event is free to the community! For more information and where to register, please visit here or contact info@jfslv.org with questions.
