Description

Research Ethics Grand Rounds: Ethical Responses to the Challenges of Health Disparities Affecting People With Disabilities

Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, from 12-1 p.m
Room 241, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center/One Magnolia Building

People with disabilities experience a number of challenges accessing health care. Barriers may include health care provider misinformation, stereotypes about disability, lack of provider training, prohibitive costs, lack of available services, or even a lack of knowledge—on the part of providers and even family members—that people with disabilities need routine preventative care. This panel discussion will outline the barriers to accessing health care and will explore both what some local agencies and organizations are doing and what they could be doing to address health disparities.p>

Panelists will include:

  • Tyler Reimschisel, M.D., Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Neurology; Director, Division of Developmental Medicine; Director, Vanderbilt LEND
  • Tom Cheetham, M.D., Director, Offi ce of Health Services, Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities; Deputy Commissioner of Child Health, Department of Children’s Services
  • Joanne Drumright, Director of Field Services, Special Olympics Tennessee
