The #NursesWithDisabilities project

There is an online movement to increase awareness about healthcare professionals who have disabilities. You may have seen the hashtags #DocsWithDisabilities and #NursesWithDisabilities on social media websites like Twitter.

The goal of the #DocsWithDisabilities/#NursesWithDisabilities Project is to share stories from the professional journeys of physicians and nurses with disabilities, in their own words. By featuring the real voices of health professionals with disabilities--including their struggles and successes--we hope to foster awareness, visibility, and community that brings together stakeholders from across medical education, clinical practice, and disability advocacy.

The project is volunteer led, by a tight-knit group of clinicians, health educators and administrators, and advocates, with and without disabilities, based at the University of Michigan Medical School's Department of Family Medicine.
