Episode 27 — Disclosure is Daunting: Employment and MS

Listen to Episode 27 of Myelin & Melanin!

Is disclosure important? How much do I disclose? These are daunting questions to consider when faced with disclosing one’s MS to an employer. While the ADA exists to protect people with disabilities, there are many things to consider when asking for accommodations and exercising our rights under this law.

Join us as we discuss the benefits of disclosure, as well as the uncertainty and shame that can often accompany this challenging task.
