Propagating the new work disability paradigm for disability benefits & workers' comp systems


A feasibility meeting was held in Michigan on September 26, 2007.  Strong interest in holding a summit was expressed, and a Summit Planning Group was formed. The Michigan Summit was held in Lansing in May, 2009, and was a well-attended success. The final report has been released, and is available for you to download and read here: Michigan Summit Final Report.

Libby Child, a disability matters consultant, and Dr. Anthony Burton, an occupational physician from General Motors, co-chair the action group which was formed out of the Summit, and which is called Workability in Michigan.
