Andy Imparato Says Nonvisible Disabilities Should Be Shared

Former Skadden fellow Andy Imparato ('91), the executive director of the Association of University Centers on Disabilities, was quoted in an Associated Press story highlighting the impact of the Americans With Disabilities Act since its passage in Congress 25 years ago ("25 Years On, Disabilities Act Has Changed Lives of Millions," July 25). "I encourage my colleagues with non-apparent disabilities to claim your disabilities and be 'out' at work. The stigmas associated with many of these conditions would be diminished more quickly than they will be if people continue to keep their disabilities to themselves," said Andy, who has lived with bipolar disorder throughout adulthood.
