Professor Janet Levey was a guest speaker at a two-day faculty in-service on Jan. 15 and 16 at the Chippewa Valley Technical College in Eau Claire, Wis. Her presentation, “disABILITIES in Healthcare Professions,” focused on how faculty in healthcare programs have historically struggled to reconcile their experiences, rigorous expectations, and patient safety, with the legal requirements related to access for students with disabilities. The session explored accessibility within the context of healthcare training programs providing foundations and frameworks within which faculty can foster accessible content.
