DPT Student Raziel Rizzo Advocates for Students with Disabilities

The Coalition for Disability Access in Health Science and Medical Education had their annual symposium in Washington D.C this April for faculty, Dean’s, disability service providers, and advocates who work with students in Health Sciences and Medical education at Universities across the country. Raziel Rizzo, from the Class of 2020, was selected to speak on a student panel to share her personal experiences with advocacy, creating allies, and education within the realm of students with disabilities pursuing degree’s in health sciences. Looking forward, her hope is to continue raising awareness and to seek opportunities to help this profession widen the lens with this topic in order to model excellence as clinicians, educators, and in everything we do.
