July 2023 NNLM Reading Club: Disability Health

Posted by on July 5th, 2023 Posted in: Blog, NNLM Reading Club

NNLM Reading Club July Titles

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 and some people acquire one as a result of an illness or injury or develop one or more as they age.

For July, in observation of the annual anniversary date of the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the NNLM Reading Club brings awareness to Disability Health. Three new books recognize persons who have been influential in 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.

“Disability inclusion means understanding the relationship between the way people function and how they participate in society, and making sure everybody has the same opportunities to participate in every aspect of life to the best of their abilities and desires.” Disability Inclusion | CDC
