Cool Ideas on Hot Topics: 8th Annual Disability Symposium
March 31, 2009, Volume 55, No. 27

The Eighth Disability Symposium will be held at the University of Pennsylvania on Friday, April 3. This year’s symposium theme, Cool Ideas on Hot Topics, will present new ideas on the most current, exciting, and urgent topics on postsecondary disabilities in three plenary sessions and eight workshops. It will provide a forum for exchanging information and experiences with colleagues from many other colleges and universities during a full-day event that includes meals.

Featured speakers include: Salome Heyward, author and leading national legal expert on disability compliance in higher education; Daniel Gottlieb, practicing psychologist, author, and radio host; and Michael Baime, professor at Penn’s School of Medicine, director of the Penn Program for Stress Management and the director of Mind-Body Programs for the Abramson Cancer Center.

The registration cost is $50, including all meals, due to the generosity of Stephanie (W’86) and Marty Walcoe, whose support has made this symposium possible. Registration fee is waived for participants affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania, presenters, and students.
