Announcing July 2023 NNLM Reading Club: Disability Health

Posted in: #CC/Academic List, #Health Interest List, #Health Sciences List, #Public/K-12 List, All Members


For July, in observation of the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the NNLM Reading Club brings awareness to Disability Health featuring three new books this month.

One in 4 U.S. adults – 61 million Americans – has a disability that impacts major life activities. Some disabilities are visible and some are invisible. Some people are born with one, some people acquire one as a result of an illness or injury, and some people develop one or more as they age.

July 26, 2023 marks the 33rd anniversary of the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The three books selected for July 2023 recognize persons who were and are influential for changing the conversation around disability health, helping to remove stigma, and redefining the nation’s laws to protect the rights of persons with a disability and ensure their inclusion.
