Fall Conference, Sunday, November 22, 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

PRINCETON DISABILTIY AWARENESS

Princeton Disability Awareness (PDA) is delighted to invite members of the Princeton University community to attend our Fall Conference on Sunday, November 22nd, 2015 at Robertson Hall from 10:30 AM - 3:00 PM. 

This year, we will be featuring extraordinary speakers who are experts in various aspects of disability rights, including self advocate Mark Farrell, Adam Krass ofAdam Krass Consulting (Assistive Technology Expert) and Peter Bell, CEO Eden Autism Services in Princeton, NJ.  Our very own Lindsey Conlan ('18) will be opening the event with an informal brunch discussion on her work in Unified Sports.

We believe that a strong presence of our faculty and student body at the conference is crucial as we seek to move towards inclusion and a better understanding of disability as a wider social issue.  This is also a good opportunity for students who are unable to attend our Disability Awareness Carnival to get involved in a meaningful way. 

We are confident that attending this conference will represent a valuable experience.  You may attend any or all of the sessions.  A small breakfast and lunch will be provided.
