Disability Rights Conference

Dr. Marie Hilliard, Chair of NCPD Board Ethics Committee; Susanna Herro, NCPD Board Chair, and Janice Benton, NCPD Executive Director will be attending the Disability Rights Leadership Institute on Bioethics on April 25 and 26. This is an event for disability rights advocates to advance the disability rights perspective on bioethics issues such as Withholding Medical Treatment, Assisted Suicide Laws, Reproductive Technologies and developing advocacy strategies on these issues. We will share news from the conference next week.
