Hi, I’m Leah!

I’m a medical student and I have achondroplasia dwarfism.

I’m working on a project to collect more inclusive photos of people with disabilities so that they can be used in medical school lectures as students are learning about these disabilities. This is in attempt to move away from the idea that disabilities are “problems that need to be solved” and towards a more holistic view of disability as a part of life.

I’m hoping that you will be able to help me spread the word and collect more photos. We are looking for photos that show some of the physical differences that come with disability, but also show individuals with disabilities living their lives. Please feel free to share this project with others. If you’d like to know more about the project, here is the link to the public-facing website: teachmedisability.comhttps://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fteachmedisability.com%2F&data=05%7C01%7CLEAH.Q.CRAWFORD%40CUANSCHUTZ.EDU%7Caaff17b0bf124e0dfeca08daee84a7aa%7C563337caa517421aaae01aa5b414fd7f%7C0%7C0%7C638084550767597325%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=5ABMNQ3p5H30Y2o7L4rRXteaAOIIj5YuBzuAuH3B68k%3D&reserved=0. Here is the link for the permission form to fill out and upload photos to: https://redcap.link/teachmedisability.

Here are a few other details:

  • This is a scholarly project that I am conducting as part of my medical school curriculum.
  • People who submit photos will sign a media release allowing their use. In this specific case, photos will only be accessible for use by people with credentials at my school. They are intended for use in medical lectures so that when instructors are teaching about various disabilities, they have more accurate representation of the people living them.
  • The only information that is accessible to the people using the photos are the photos themselves and the condition(s) pictured. No other personal or health information is shared.
    As an individual, I have no intention of overstepping the rights of the people who are so generous to share their photos. If anyone were to reach out to me in the future and state that they would like their photos to no longer be used, I would not hesitate to remove them from access to others at my university.

Please let me know if there are any further questions; I would be happy to answer them!

Thanks,

Leah
