Intersections Conference: Disability, Employment and Benefits

Event Date:  May 7 and 8, 2013
Event Website: More information at
Event Location:  Radisson Paper Valley in Appleton, Wisconsin

We all know that you cannot provide or receive services in isolation. Issues around disability, employment and benefits intersect every day. Being aware of these intersections and knowing how to navigate the system is crucial. 

This event provided information, resources, and training about shortcuts, potential detours, roadblocks and scenic routes on the road to disability, employment and benefits related issues! We will also make connections between mental health, transition times for youth moving from school to work or older adults moving to the next life phase that could include accessibility and benefits questions and concerns.

Attend this conference to hear from national experts who will provide a road map on how services connect, how to access resources, and what to expect down the road.  Join discussions with others struggling with the same issues you are experiencing, hear stories about solutions that worked, and expand your knowledge about disability, employment and benefits intersections!
