Disability Awareness Association at Cooper (DAAC)


Our Mission:

We are medical students who identify as being disabled, physically or mentally, and students who wish to support the demonstration of disability awareness. Our goals are the following:

• Encourage self-advocates to teach us
• Spread awareness and destigmatize disability
• Find and make available tools to better connect with patients with disabilities
• Facilitate mentorship opportunities between students and healthcare professionals
• Reinforce the dignity of patients with disabilities

DAAC Student Leadership: Eena Lin (M2), Emily Serata (M2), Nicole Melchiorre (M2), Reed Fireston (M2), Sophia Chryssofos (M2)
