Dr. Lynn Rose, CGDS Deputy Director, has been invited to be the plenary speaker for the World Disability and Rehabilitation Virtual Conference 2020 (WDRVC 2020) to be held in June 2020. Her talk, “Disabling Myths,” outlines misunderstandings in popular culture about people with disabilities. Dr. Lynn serves as Iraq’s country representative for the WDRPA and is a lifetime member of the organization. This virtual conference, a response to the COVID-19 restrictions, is in addition to the face-to-face conference to be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, later this year.
