For National Disability Awareness Month in October, we chatted with people with spinal cord injuries who’ve successfully returned to work. In this interview, we talked to Shannon Minnick from Washington DC. She is a C7 quadriplegic for 29 years and is the Director of Independent Living Services at Independence Now, Inc.
October was National Disability Employment Awareness Month! To celebrate, we spoke to people with SCI about their careers. Watch our video chat with Bill Fertig, the Director of United Spinal’s Resource Center. A former police officer, he became a paraplegic in an off-duty motorcycle accident in 1999.
