Advocating for the Deaf community is at the forefront of our efforts. At Deaf Health Initiative, we bring awareness to issues within healthcare and education that negatively impact those with hearing losses. Through active collaboration, we help organizations understand and address the unique challenges that deaf individuals face in healthcare and education.
We work with a variety of groups, including:
Deaf Awareness Clinic
A hands-on, cultural competency training exercise to expose medical professionals and students to the communication obstacles deaf patients often experience in healthcare settings.
Local and international healthcare systems
Health maintenance organizations and insurance companies
Teaching medical institutions and schools
Government agencies and policymakers
