Beyond Budgets: From Policy to Progress in Disability Employment
The Thornburgh Family Lecture Series in Disability Law and Policy is sponsored by the Dick Thornburgh Forum for Law and Public Policy. The series was created through the generosity of Dick and Ginny Thornburgh. As 2003 recipients of the Henry B. Betts Award, the Thornburghs donated the proceeds from the award to the University of Pittsburgh to establish this lecture series. The fund has been supplemented by grants from the Office of the Chancellor, School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, and School of Law.
