8 disability rights activists changing the world for disabled people
The rights that we as a #disabledcommunity have – and may even take for granted – have been fought for by disability rights activists, working tirelessly to help create #change. Here we take a look at eight extraordinary people whose work has undoubtedly had an impact on disabled people’s lives.

I am sure you would agree, we owe a lot to disability rights activists from across the world. I would love to highlight them all in this article, but it would be impossible. So, I have tried to be as diverse as possible, including people of mixed genders and various background, and representing a wide variety of disability rights.

Hello Red Hawks! This account was created for an ANTH105 Action Project in hopes to bring together the disabled community to raise awareness of disability culture on campus! We will provide posts from students/staff with disabilities, allies, campus professionals, etc. Together we can examine what MSU has to offer for the disabled community and what they can improve on!

In Colorado, deaf & hard-of-hearing individuals have been experiencing trouble purchasing cannabis in a retail setting. There are a variety of barriers preventing full access to the plant, including a lack of interpreters, the absence of captions & a lack of cannabis-related signs in American Sign Language (ASL).
.
This lack of vocabulary is leaving members of the deaf community to spell out ridiculously long words like “endocannabinoid” using individual letters from the ASL alphabet.
.
eCS Therapy Center, a Boulder-based marijuana education nonprofit, has stepped up to bridge the gap between the cannabis & deaf communities. In an attempt to break the communication barrier & make accessing legal marijuana easier, they created “Signs for the Times,” a new vocabulary that allows deaf & hard-of-hearing cannabis users to navigate the constantly evolving cannabis landscape.

🍍This is general information. MANY people may or may not be affected by some of these drugs and their dosages.
.
Generally, the higher the dose of the steroid and the longer you’re on it, the more likely you are to encounter weight gain. Short courses of a few days to a couple of weeks don’t usually produce many side effects.
.

There are factors taken into account. Joshua F. Baker at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center in Pennsylvania, and colleagues assessed how primary rheumatoid arthritis therapies influence changes in BMI. Using three large administrative databases, the researchers identified 32,859 rheumatoid arthritis patients who received treatment with methotrexate, leflunomide, prednisone and tumor necrosis factor inhibitors (TNFis). The results of the analyses showed that weight gain was seen at six months among users of methotrexate, prednisone, and TNFi. -
-
ASK YOUR RHEUMATOLOGIST TO LOWER YOUR MED DOSE/ALTERNATIVES IF YOU ARE EXPIERENCING WEIGHT GAIN or any other side effects! 💊
.
If you have any questions/comments on the research done, or suggestions on anything, feel free to DM 💌
