Ep89: Endometriosis and Disability

We break down the definition of disability under the ADA or the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as mention the WHO criteria. We also discuss dynamic as well as “invisible” or non-apparent disability. This is the first episode in a series we are doing on disability.
