Get to Know Me! Poster Campaign
These posters were first developed as part of our effort to help hospitals become more comfortable supporting people with developmental disabilities. Staff in the hospitals thought they were helpful reminders about who the people were that they were supporting, but we also learned that people with disabilities liked seeing the posters when they went to health care settings. As it says in the posters, they remind health care providers to "Get to know me. I am more than my disability."
This campaign is one way to encourage people with disabilities to introduce themselves to health care providers.
We are always looking for volunteers (aged 18 or older) to model in our "I am…" posters. We combine photos with stories so we would need:
- Your first name
- Your photo
- A short story about you
- A quote on your feelings towards healthcare or health in general
If you or someone you know would like to participate or for more information, please contact us at:
