The Foundation for Science and Disability, founded in 1975, is an affiliate of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  Its mission is to promote the integration of scientists with disabilities into all activities of the scientific community, and to promote the removal of barriers in order to enable students with disabilities to choose careers in science.

This reference page contains archives, links, and supplementary information that may be helpful to members and others interested in the Foundation.

Hal Frost, a colleague from our 2017 meeting in Boston, contacted us recently and sent us a CV of what he has been up to recently. His career is an example of several iterations of starts and stops, and he hopes it can be an inspiration to someone who faces a bump in the road. Comments, questions ?

CV, other info, letter on "Mental Disability Matters to Society"

 and Hal's first-hand account of being an engineer and scientist with a disability
