I found “My Life Is More ‘Disposable’ During This Pandemic” and "I’m disabled and need a ventilator to live. Am I expendable during this pandemic?" to be very powerful pieces. These two works should be read by everyone, ESPECIALLY health care workers. History provides an unfortunate abundance of examples of stigma and discrimination directed towards members of the disability community. During a pandemic where there are limited life-saving resources, like ventilators, these stigmas are bound to play a role in how protocols are constructed to decide who gets to stay alive or die. It’s deeply disturbing to observe how misunderstood and undervalued the disability community is. After reading both of these pieces, I found myself wondering what would happen if everyone read and understood how to apply the principles of disability justice. For example, by recognizing the wholeness of each member of the disability community, health care workers can understand that as Kukla mentioned through describing the different facets of his wheelchair using friend’s identity, people live at the intersection of multiple identities. Yet, members of communities that are consistently undervalued (ex. Elderly community, marginalized groups, disability community) are often only acknowledged for their belonging to one of the many groups they belong to in life. Both Kukla and Wong, also brought up the belief that disabled individuals have a poor quality of life- a misconception that many abled body people adopt as truth. This lead me to wonder about the potential impact of the healthcare system applying “leadership of the most impacted”. That is, what would happen if more disabled individuals went into healthcare? Whether that means disabled individuals becoming physicians or joining the boards of hospitals in order to help advise for training of physicians or policy changes. As a member of the disability community and an aspiring physician, I hope to be able to act as a leader dispelling false narratives about the disability community. I sometimes do worry about becoming a physician in the sense that it;s a profession where historically everyone is expected to be able-bodied and of optimal health. Disability does not equate inability and perhaps this truth needs to first be conveyed to med school admissions committees.
