The Diversity & Inclusion Task Force (DITF) posted its first infographic educating students about the International Day of People With Disabilities (IDPWD) on December 3, 2020. The IDPWD aims to celebrate people with disabilities and spread awareness about disabilities that are not easily visible like hearing loss and mental illness. View the infographic on the SAA Facebook Page if you haven’t already.

In January, look out for an infographic on working with Latinx and/or Hispanic patients and providing culturally sensitive care. In addition, the DITF will host an interview with Dr. Ianthe Dunn-Murad discussing the importance of diversity in audiology and humanitarian work on Thursday, January 28, 2021. You can access the interview via the SAA Facebook Page. No registration required.
