Ethan Crough, a middle school technology education teacher, joins us for Rare Disease Day to celebrate diversity as a man living with achondroplasia. Ethan discusses his experiences of living with achondroplasia and highlights useful resources such as Little People of America, which provide support for people of short stature and their families.
