Janet Krumm Disability and Media Lecture Series

Lecture Description

The Janet Krumm Disability & Media Lecture Series is an annualJanet Krumm Disability and Media Lecture Series logo public lecture series which recognizes the power of information and the contributions of individuals who have used the media, written and visual, to create an understanding of the experience of disability, as well as the community's collective responsibility to embrace diversity.

The Lecture Series honors the efforts of Janet M. Krumm, founder and editor of the New Hampshire Challenge, a quarterly news publication for families who have members with disabilities.

Janet passed away in June 2008.
