On May 20, Heather Mills McCartney will be the featured speaker at a conference on living with disabilities being held at the Mississippi Trademark Building. The conference is being hosted by the state of Mississippi's Department of Rehabilitation Services. The Department's Executive Director, Butch McMillan says, "We want people to realize that (our clients) are capable people with disabilities rather than have the public focus on their disabilities, " During the conference disabled persons and their employers will be given opportunities to interact with professionals in the areas of health care, rehabilitation, assistive technology, and mental health. There will also be workshops conducted on cultural diversity, disability etiquette and accommodations in the work place.
