Awareness Week Brings Attention to Invisible Disabilities

Senior disability studies students Joey Bogdajewicz, Maddi Hartke and Katie Phillips are sponsoring an awareness week on campus for invisible disabilities and how they affect everyday living, titled “More Than Meets the Eye,” beginning Nov. 7.

From 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Nov. 7-9 at tables in the Student Union Building, students and faculty will have the opportunity to write about how they have overcome or are currently dealing with their invisible disabilities as part of an anonymous picture series.

Guest speaker Brittany Hanstad, a special education teacher in the Kirksville School District with personal ties to invisible disabilities, will host a presentation at 6 p.m. Nov. 9 in Violette Hall 1320. Immediately following her presentation will be a discussion panel of students and faculty, covering how invisible disabilities play a role in their lives.

For questions, contact Joey Bogdajewicz.
