vice-rector of Coordination and Welfare Services of the UMU, Paloma Sobrado;
and the General Director of Universities and Research, Juan Monzó Cabrera.

The conference on disability, organized by FAMDIF for more than twenty years, brought together students from the University of Murcia (UMU) with volunteers and young people with disabilities in the same space until next Sunday.
This year, the conference dealt with three main topics: the right to personal autonomy, the right to accessibility and the right to sexuality.
In addition to the talks, students of the UMU will coexist with young people with disabilities during the three days participating in the faculty of nursing, education, psychology and social work.
