🛈 Synopsis : MEDCOM recognizes 2014 International Day of Persons with Disabilities as they encourage people with disabilities to seek employment with MEDCOM.
The Civilian Corps of the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) recognizes Wednesday, December 3rd as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities as they continue encouraging people with disabilities to seek employment with MEDCOM.
In 1992, the United Nations decreed December 3rd as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities in an effort to encourage global understanding and awareness of issues affecting persons with disabilities.
This year's theme is Sustainable Development: The Promise of Technology.
The theme emphasizes the role technology plays to help create a working environment for employees with disabilities.
Ms. Maria Rodriguez, the Army Medicine Civilian Corps' Disability Hiring Manager, highlights the importance of using assistive technology.
"Assistive technology may help employees with disabilities to overcome challenges they may encounter in the workplace. We encourage individuals with disabilities to explore career opportunities with the Civilian Corps. MEDCOM is committed to helping persons with disabilities receive reasonable accommodations to perform their jobs."
The Civilian Corps continues to support the Department of Defense's goals and objectives for hiring persons with disabilities.
