becoming disabled, Jeanne Lazo spent the five years struggling with
declining health and the stigma of being a disabled employee.
Applying her consulting skills and knowledge gained in the business
world, she became convinced that a better solution could be found to
the resource-draining effects of disability on employers and the
U.S. economy. Employees lack knowledge about how the disability
system works, their rights and how to rebuild their lives. The lack
of knowledge fostered the premises for the book, Persistence is
Power: A real-world guide for the newly disabled employee.
