Catherine McGowan, Masters in Social Work Student, Officer, MS Society of Canada:

Starting with the Saskatchewan Voice of People with Disabilities in the mid '80's Catherine has been a long time advocate within the Disability Rights movement. After completing her Bachelor of Social Work, Catherine worked with the Ottawa Carleton Independent Living Centre, Disabled Peoples' International and the Manitoba League of Persons with Disabilities (MLPD). Catherine is now working at the MS Society of Canada, Winnipeg Chapter, while completing her Masters in Social Work at the University of Manitoba, specializing in disability policy. She is presently commencing her thesis exploring the disability / illness dialectic in a social political context, grounded in her own life experience. She continues her involvement with the MLPD as a Council member and Council of Canadians with Disabilities Representative. Catherine is a member of the Canadian Centre on Disability Studies and is honoured to be asked to present regarding the proposed Masters in Disability Studies program, hopefully soon to be in place at the University of Manitoba. Catherine also has a background in theatre and music.
