Rosasco Attends NOSSCR Disability Lawyer Conference in New OrleansWednesday, May 12, 2010
Today is the first day of the NOSSCR Social Security Disability Lawyer conference in "The Big Easy", as this fun loving city is affectionately known. Some of the best Social Security disability lawyers from around the country will be in attendance, including my good friend and current NOSSCR President Larry Wittenberg.
While I was a presenter on ERISA Long Term Disability claims at the last NOSSCR conference, I am taking a break this conference so I can learn something new myself! This time out I plan to sharpen my medical knowledge by attending separate seminars on multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, lung disease (COPD) and chronic pain.
In addition, I will be attending two seminars on Veterans Disability claims given by Katrina Eagle, Esq., one of the best in this complicated are of law. I have seen her speak before at VA Disability Law conferences, and she really knows her stuff. Finally, I will be attending a seminar on post-traumatic stress disorder, which is now rampant among returning vets from Iraq and Afghanistan. I am seeing it weekly in my practice these days
After all this learning, perhaps I will take a much needed diversion to Bourbon Street to catch some New Orleans’ jazz. After all, they don’t call it "the Big Easy" for nothing!
