Mental Health & The Disabled Working Woman: How Young Women Professionals with Paralysis Balance Work, Romance, and Everything Else
In conjunction with Disability EmpowHer Network, the Reeve Foundation invites you to join Nurse Linda for a panel discussion on young professional women living with paralysis and mental health.

This discussion will explore the impact of sexism, ageism, and ableism that women with paralysis experience as well as other unique issues that disabled young women professionals face that impact their mental health.

Moderated by Nurse Linda, the webinar will feature two women who are in their 20s and living with paralysis; the panelists will share their experiences and offer their insights, perspectives, and advice.

By hearing from women who share similar challenges, audience members will gain an understanding that they are not alone and be empowered to focus on their own mental health.

This event is FREE for everyone to attend. Live captioning will be available.

If you can't watch the webinar live, it will be recorded and shared via email to all registrants and available on the Reeve Foundation's YouTube channel.

If you have any questions ahead of time, please use the "Questions & Comments" box located on this registration screen.

Mar 29, 2023 03:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
