The NIH funded a two-year project to explore translational research in disability studies and health sciences in a strand at the SDS conference: the goals of this NIH-related conference strand were: (1) to demonstrate how disability studies theory contributes to the conception of health sciences research and practice; (2) to provide best practice examples of disability studies translational research and practice; and (3) to mentor a new generation of federally funded disability studies researchers and practitioners. Principal investigators: past SDS presidents Devva Kasnitz and Pam Block.
