Show Notes

There is mounting evidence that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are experiencing more severe COVID-19 outcomes than the general population. In many ways, vaccination is a golden opportunity to address longstanding issues of equity and injustice. Our guest, Dr. Kara Ayers, PhD, is here to help us explore just how true that is for people with disabilities. Dr. Ayers is the Associate Director of the University of Cincinnati Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, and the co-founder of the Disabled Parenting Project.
