Submit your story to the Doctors with Disabilities Project
The goal of the #DocsWithDisabilities/#NursesWithDisabilities Project is to share stories from the professional journeys of physicians and nurses with disabilities, in their own words. By featuring the real voices of health professionals with disabilities--including their struggles and successes--we hope to foster awareness, visibility, and community that brings together stakeholders from across medical education, clinical practice, and disability advocacy.

The project is volunteer led, by a tight-knit group of clinicians, health educators and administrators, and advocates, with and without disabilities, based at the University of Michigan Medical School's Department of Family Medicine.

Photos and stories will be posted on Twitter, using the hashtag #DocsWithDisabilities, on Instagram @docswithdisabilities, and compiled on the University of Michigan Medical School's Department of Family Medicine page.

Thank you for your contribution! Submissions will be approved, processed, and posted to the above channels from January to May, 2018.
