  • Please join us for the Valley of the Sun SD Support Group Meeting on Saturday, January 12.

    We'll have a 30 minute meet and greet and then guest speaker Beth Williams, a Social Worker at Mayo Hospital, Phoenix, will speak on the topic of workplace discrimination. Beth is an Arizona licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) who has her undergraduate degree from Boston University in Communication and her Master of Social Work degree from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida. Beth has over 20 years of clinical and advocacy experience including as a senior extension faculty member at Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations providing training and technical assistance on the Americans with Disabilities Act and related legislation. She has provided countless presentations to groups large and small on accommodations in the workplace and is currently practicing social work with the Radiation Oncology team here at Mayo Clinic and has a private practice in Scottsdale. The title of her discussion is "Practical Solutions for Workplace Accommodations for Individuals with Voice Disorders."

    Discussions can be informative for the newly diagnosed as well as those who have been dealing with SD for a long time. Family members and friends are welcome and can provide a different perspective.

    Whether you're a regular, occasional, or a first-time attendee, we hope you'll find the time to join us.
