    This webinar brings together academics and activists working in relation to disbelief and disregard in medicine, chronic illness and disability. It will focus in paticular on the relationship between disbelief/disregard and energy, understood in two ways: first in relation to chronic illness/disability that involves energy limitation, and secondly in relation to the ways in which activism and advocacy in relation to medicine, chronic illness and disability takes, and depletes, energy.
