After World War I, as 200,000 military members returned home with a disability, the US government standardized rehabilitation programs for the first time. The consolidation of rehabilitative services by the government resulted in a consistent definition of disability and ability, one which was intimately tied to a veteran’s economic contribution to their family and community.
通过在这些方案中结合临床治疗和工作培训，政府承诺回归经济独立性。这一承诺通过政府宣传，政府宣传为退伍军人，包括杂志Coming Back(1919) andCarry On（1919-1918）。
Nora O’Neill is a first-year medical student at Yale School of Medicine. She is pursuing a combined MD-PhD in the History of Science and Medicine. In 2018, she completed her bachelor’s degree from Harvard University in the History of Science, focusing on the intersection of disability rights and reproductive justice. At Yale, she plans to study the social constructions of disability in medical and social activist spaces. As a physician historian, she hopes to engage in patient-centered care while also unraveling the historical complexities of the patient-doctor relationship.
