Dr. Mudrick’s teaching and research are focused on social policies.  Her research examines disability policy in the areas of civil rights, health, and employment.  She has published on disability issues in employment, health, civil rights, and childhood disability.  She works regularly with the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF), a non-profit disability advocacy organization.  This work includes an evaluation of federal disability civil rights laws and assessment of the current state of  health care for Americans with disabilities for the National Council on Disability.  In addition to work on disability topics, she has directed federally-funded child welfare training grants and evaluated demonstration projects of child welfare services.
