Statement of Employment Support for People with Dwarfism
Little People of America (LPA) would like to extend its support to the plaintiffs in two Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) lawsuits, both involving women with dwarfism. Employment discrimination remains a key issue in our community. LPA is dedicated to raising awareness around employment issues that face people with dwarfism and fully supports its members’ pursuit of any and all career opportunities.
LPA's Medical Resource Center
This is THE place for medical information needs.
The LPA Medical Resource Center is an in-depth reference guide to the approximately 200 different types of dwarfism, intended not just for the lay person, but for medical professionals as well.
The MRC also contains information about anesthesia, surgeries and procedures, common questions and a FAQ.
The Medical Resource Center was compiled by Medical Advisory Board member Ericka Okenfuss. She is also available for limited questions.
