The Tennessee Disability MegaConference is Tennessee’s largest disability-specific conference for individuals with disabilities, families, and professionals. At the conference, people share the latest information and innovations on many topics including housing, employment, education, health care, recreation and leisure, mental health, and others. Continuing education credits are offered in many categories. People attending make new friends and important connections as everyone works together to encourage the full participation of all people with disabilities in their own lives!
The theme for the 2014 TN Disability MegaConference is Change!
“The only thing constant in life is change”
― François de La Rochefoucauld
It seems to be everywhere right now, particularly in the TN disability community. It can be a bomb going off destroying our peace of mind; it can be the long-hoped-for ticket to a better life. What makes change so…
Hard for some and easy for others?
Worth advocating for?
