But You LOOK Good
Wayne Connell, Founder of The Invisible Disabilities Advocate
This seminar is a guide to understanding and encouraging people living with chronic illness and pain. It gives great practical ideas on “what to say,” “what not to say” and how to help someone living with a debilitating condition. A person can have an “invisible disability” whether or not they have a “visible” impairment or use an assistive device.

Free. To register please call 303-269-4001
If you plan to attend this session, please make sure you are perfume, cologne and fragrance free.

The Invisible Disabilities Advocate is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people understand chronic illness and pain. For more information about IDA please visit http://www.MyIDA.org.
