After years of friendship and informal collaboration, I am happy to announce the official partnership between myself and Michelle Hernandez, PhD.. Dr. Hernandez and I have worked on projects and done presentations together in the past, but this is official! We will hit the road for joint presentations where we will candidly address apparent and nonapparent disability issues, the intersection of ethnicity, race and disability as well as practical advice on how to be an ally. To book myself and Dr. Hernandez contact me at http://www.NinaGcomedian.com.
