The focus is on the success stories of individuals with disabilities, highlighting their courageous journeys through vocational rehabilitation and how they overcome the obstacles to independence and employment. The Foundation distributes these podcasts through iTunes and its VR Workforce Studio website. With hosts Rick Sizemore, WWRC Director, and Anne Hudlow, VR Workforce Executive Producer, the VR Workforce Studio is recognized as the first of its kind and has quickly become America’s voice for vocational rehabilitation. We invite you to join us for a new episode every month to hear the courageous stories of those reaching their goals through vocational rehabilitation.
