    Dr. Jihan Abbas

    In today’s show, I am joined by Dr. Jihan Abbas, an instructor in the School of Disability Studies at Ryerson University and a researcher at DAWN-RAFH Canada, the DisAbled Women’s Network. We talk about her experiences studying DS, her concern about the lack of access to vaccines for disabled people, and how she thinks disability can save the world.
