The years I have known I was dying, have been the best years of my life
I'm delighted to share the first episode of our new podcast series, Atrainability Radio.
Lucy Watts is a 26-year-old prominent disability and health advocate, activist and consultant.
She's a committed individual who dedicates her time to making a difference for others.
As a disabled young woman, Lucy has to overcome a wide variety of barriers, not least the low expectations of disabled people by others and the lack of accessibility, as well as living with a complex, life-limiting illness, causing complex medical needs.
In this episode of Atrainability Radio, we get to know Lucy the person not just Lucy the patient.
Here's my conversation with Lucy Watts, in episode 01 of Atrainability Radio.
