Commissioners' Comment, October 2008 #1

October is Disabilities Awareness Month nationwide -- The Washington County Disabilities Advisory Committee to the Board of County Commissioners assesses needs of citizens and makes information on those needs available to the public and the Comissioners. On October 8th, Michael Dalto, project Director for the Employed Individuals with Disabilities Program (EID) of the Maryland Department of Disabilities spoke at this year's forum on Health Care and Disabilities, and outlined the basics of EID--which helps folks with disabilities retain Medicaid health benefits while working.
