The Work Fitness & Disability Roundtable is a free e-group — a discussion group that communicates by e-mail using Yahoo Groups. Our 1,400+ members are professionals from multiple disciplines who are called on to respond when working people’s lives are disrupted by illness, injury or the progress of chronic conditions or age. The Roundtable provides a dynamic forum for the exchange of ideas, posing of questions, and discussion of topics of interest and importance.
We have a common interest in preventing and minimizing the secondary consequences of health conditions on the affected individuals’ daily lives, especially regarding their work, and in promoting the health and productivity of the American workforce. Our special focus is improving outcomes in situations in which new injuries, illnesses, or the progress of chronic medical conditions have temporarily or permanently changed peoples’ ability to function in their “usual” way.
The Roundtable is moderated by Jennifer Christian, MD, MPH, and sponsored by Webility Corporation. Members use Yahoo Groups technology to communicate amongst themselves. Whenever a member sends an e-mail message to the Roundtable or replies to one from the Roundtable, Yahoo Groups automatically distributes that e-mail to every Roundtable member. Those who prefer to minimize e-mail volume choose the daily digest option, a single e-mail that consolidates all the messages for each 24 hour period. Most prefer to receive and reply to “real time” messages individually throughout the day.
