December White House Disability Group Conference Call TODAY..

No opinion on this call as yet.. Purely passing along as an FYI regarding its occurrence, not to mention these are your Washington D.C. tax dollars in action..

Keyboard tip goes to Mark Johnson at Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia.. Were it not for HIS disability mailing list, I would have no clue of this phone call’s existence.. White House needs to do “a little work” on its publicity tactics.. 😀

In reference to the very last line of the original communique, “WHDG strongly urges you to distribute this email broadly”..?! May I just say……..


Next time, White House folks, how ’bout trying the word……..


Not to mention (but I will)…


Beginning this month the White House Disability Group (WHDG) will host monthly calls to update you on various disability issues as well as introduce you to persons who work on disability issues in the federal government.

The first call will be this Friday, December 3, at 11:00 AM Eastern.

White House/CDC/HHS H1N1 Phone Calls :: October 8th and 9th (Thurs/Fri)..

Found this in my inbox and thought it might be of interest with respect to getting a feel for your taxpayer dollars in action.. For a balanced opinion on the “safety” of vaccinations, ANY vaccines, please do track down the latest from Zen Garcia with the Endeavor Freedom disability self-advocacy project..

As to actually participating in the phone calls, your guess is as good as mine just now.. This is all the information that was provided.. The United States government obviously remains with a very.. very long way to go before it finally catches a clue about the concept of being universally “accessible”..

In an effort to give you the most up to date information about the H1N1 virus, the White House Office of Public Engagement, in coordination with the Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will hold informational conference calls on this subject. Below is a list of conference call information pertaining to different communities. Please feel free to join any number of these calls. Topics will include prevention, the importance of vaccination, vaccine safety and availability.
