In Continued Support of National Disability Employment Awareness Month

The MSKTC would like to continue its support of National Disability Month by providing our factsheet titled "Employment after Burn Injury" we discuss how returning to work after a burn injury can be  accompanied by a confusing range of emotions, such as feeling both excitement and anxiety. It may be hard to deal with returning back into the workplace and interacting with people. To learn more view our factsheets on Employment after Burn Injury and Social Interaction after Burn Injury.
