Day 24 - Share the "Working Works" PSA

Through the voices of several individuals, among them Major League Baseball great Cal Ripken Jr., the "Working Works" public service announcement explores the many reasons people work, including after injury or illness. It also touches upon the important roles different people - including employers, colleagues, healthcare professionals, and family members - play in supporting people who acquire disabilities during their working years to stay in the workforce. Consider showing it and using one of its three accompanying discussion guides to spark discussion about stay-at-work and return-to-work among co-workers, employer representatives or healthcare professionals in a group setting.
