Accessibility in Lab | Success Stories in Accessibility with Yujia Ding, M.S., Ed.D.
Welcome to the final part of our series on Accessibility in the Lab, where each episode explores the importance of accessibility in the lab, academia, the workforce and other applications.
From our previous episodes, we've learned how accessibility needs compare between academic and professional settings and different approaches to conversating with a colleague or a supervisor. For this episode, we're expanding our look into the conversations that can make all the difference for someone with accessibility needs.
Our guest for this episode is Yujia Ding, M.S., Ed.D., who after being diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) during her undergrad, was paired with her service dog, Griffey, to support her during POTS episodes. Listen as she shares her stories on overcoming accessibility issues and a forward-focused outlook on accessibility accommodations.
