BEND, OR -- How the general public interacts with disabled people is the subject of Tuesday evening's OSU-Cascades Science Pub. It's called “Look Beyond Face Value; The Psychology of Disability and Communication.”
OSU professor Dr. Kathleen Bogart tells KBND News part of the discussion will focus on 'ableism.' She says, “Ableism is prejudice against disability. Prejudice against this largest minority group in the U.S.” She adds, “I will also talk about my own experience with facial paralysis and my research on other people with facial paralysis; The way that they compensate.”
Science Pub begins at 6:30 p.m. at McMenamins in downtown Bend.
