On October 19, 2022, Access Justice Brooklyn Director of Legal Services, Sidney Cherubin, served on a panel with New York State Bar Association president, Sherry Levin Wallach, alongside Edwina Martin, Rebecca Shapiro, and John Sullivan for a Plenary Session on Invisible Disabilities at the 2022 NYSBA Partnership Conference in Albany, NY.
Invisible Disabilities Week takes place on October 16-22, 2022. In the United States, 96% of people with chronic medical conditions show no outward signs of their illness, and 10% experience symptoms that are considered disabling. Attendees explored ways to identify invisible disabilities an discuss tools and resources available to attorney and clients.
NYSBA’s Partnership Conference is the premier civil legal services educational and networking conference attended by leaders of civil legal service organizations and private law firms from across New York State.
