Dr. Willi Horner-Johnson takes a cross-disability approach to pregnancy and health in her work as Associate Professor at Oregon Health and Science University's School of Public Health, director of the Oregon Office on Disability in Health, and co-PI of the National Center for Disability and Pregnancy. Her work studies both pregnancy of people with disabilities and the birth of people with disabilities from preconception to post-partum health. She calls for a culture shift in reproductive care to respect people with disabilities, and for more accessible healthcare settings.
