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 is committed to providing access to the most current medical information available. Dedicated and experienced physicians from LPA’s Medical Advisory Board generously volunteer to assist members and their physicians with medical consultations, referrals and critical information. These physicians cover multi-specialized fields of practice.
As a benefit of membership, LPA members are able to contact Medical Advisory Board doctors for help in diagnosis or for any medical concerns. Medical Advisory Doctors often attend the yearly nation conference to hold workshops and see patients - for free - at the conference hotel site.
