National Disability Awareness Month, 1993

October is National Disability Awareness Month. During this month, employers, volunteer organizations, churches, schools, and other groups are encouraged to provide seminars and job fairs that promote understanding of disabilities and emphasize a person's abilities rather than disabilities. This issue of MMWR includes reports of assessments of work disability, mobility disability, and self-care disability in the United States. Additional information about National Disability Awareness Month is available from The President's Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities, 131 F Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20004-1107; telephone (202) 376- 6200.
