Do most people perceive disabled persons as beautiful and productive? Ask Dr. Applewhite. People with visible and non-visible physical disabilities are reminded constantly by advertisements that able-bodied persons are beautiful, productive, and successful. However, most people hold the perception that a physically or mentally disabled person is just the opposite. Supermodel Beverly Johnson, Spokesperson for the Global Down Syndrome Foundation 2014 and recipient of the Quincy Jones Exceptional Advocacy Award,  is our Special Guest and will share a unique perspective of how perceptions of beauty and disability can be changed. Host Dr. Danita Applewhite, Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor and Educator, encourages fellow Veterans, students, and employees with Disability to change their self-perceptions and images to enhance education and workforce success. Our show also features VET2VET Talk with Co-Host Mitch Caviness and other Veterans sharing their perspectives and nationwide announcements. Your tax-deductible donation of $5 or more monthly at will support our men and women Veterans with school and workforce challenges.
