My particpation in the AZLEND program will enhance my career as a social worker. AZLEND will provide the opportunity to increase my understanding of the systemic issues surronding the care of children with disabilities and their families and to be prepared for effective action through collaboration with other disciplines. I would like to participate in the AZLEND program so as to prove that collaborative action is feasible and to persuade lawmakers to make serious changes in shaping more just social policies, particularly those that affect vulnerable populations.
