Mike Hoenig is employed as a program coordinator at the University of Iowa Center for Disabilities and Development (CDD) in Iowa City. During his 23-year tenure with CDD, Mike has developed and implemented a variety of advocacy training initiatives. In his present role with CDD's State and Community Projects office, Mike works with training grants on health promotion, community capacity-building, and disability awareness. He has a BA in psychology from Central College, Pella, Iowa, and an MA in Rehabilitation Counseling from the University of Iowa. Having experienced blindness from birth, Mike has a first-hand knowledge of many of the barriers which persons with disabilities must overcome.

Because of Mike's strong commitment to leadership development and peer support, many individuals with disabilities are now taking charge of their lives and creating change in their communities.
