Doing Doctor Visits: More to Say

We had so much to say on this topic last semester that we’re bringing it back! What have our experiences been like going to the doctor, PT, specialist, etc.? What strategies have we developed? What has made things go okay? What rubs us the wrong way?

RSVP at to receive the Zoom details

Access Info: CART and ASL will be provided. Please contact or 312-355-7050 with any other requests.

Flyer description: On a light blue background, there is bold gray lettering and an icon of a purple mug with an orange tea tab hanging over the side. Across the top is a red banner with the RSVP link. At the lower left is a small image of DCC House (yellow and purple with a lawn and a small orange cat) and the In Our Own Words logo.


In Our Own Words is a community gathering and intentional space for people who identify as disabled or are exploring their experience with disability.

We define disability and disability experience broadly to include any kind of body or mind that doesn’t fit into cultural norms about what a bodymind should be and do. And we welcome those in our community who think they may have a disability but aren’t sure. Whether you have an official diagnosis or not, this space is yours.

We ask that nondisabled folks respect that this is an intentional space for disabled people to build community with one another.
