LSHTM Student Experiences: Why Include Disability in Your Research and How to Do it

Panel of current and former MSc and PhD students

Date: 18th November, 2015

Audio with Powerpoint slides available: here.

About the seminar:

It is estimated that one in seven people globally has a disability, and that the vast majority of disability is concentrated in Low and Middle Income Countries. Despite this high proportion, people with disabilities are often excluded or marginalised from research and interventions, including in public health. This practical seminar will showcase work by current and former MSc and PhD students who have undertaken research in disability and will explain both the rationale and the (simple, straightforward) methods for appreciating and including disability in your studies. The seminar is aimed at both MSc and PhD students – especially those who are in the early stages of study design – and we particularly encourage those who have not previously focused on disability in their studies/research to attend.
