NCFDD Webinar: How to Manage Chronic Illness and Academic Life

January 28, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Maintaining professional productivity while managing a chronic illness has several particular challenges. At times, the scheduling and culture of the academy actively ignores the needs of the body/mind in its demand for scholarly and professional productivity. Drawing on her scholarship and professional experiences, TherĂ­ Pickens will discuss strategies for living and working with chronic illness. The webinar begins by addressing the common challenges and triumphs of living with a chronic illness. Then, participants learn strategies for how to negotiate the major concerns including those that require more delicate and deft management of ableist structures.
