Introducing DeafHealth

July 19, 2023
DeafHealth

We are here to break barriers in Healthcare.

Our goal is to see strong deaf communities where people feel empowered, well-informed, and supported when dealing with healthcare. We think everyone should have the right to be healthy. 

DeafHealth is an inclusive effort that bridges the healthcare system and deaf communities. It was created by a group of people who care a lot about this cause, including healthcare experts. We aim to give strength and knowledge to deaf people about their health, well-being, and the healthcare choices they have. 

Key features: 

  • ASL Videos - DeafHealth is making health information that is easily accessible to our deaf communities.  
  • Social Media - We make it simple for you to connect with us and others just like you. We’re around anytime, anywhere at @deafhealthaccess.  
  • Trusted – We work with doctors, nurses, and experts who serve our deaf communities and who may be deaf or hard of hearing themselves! They are reliable and know the ins and outs of the healthcare system. 
  • Everyone Belongs - We are a supportive community that listens, validates, and understands. No matter whether you hear us, see us, or feel us - you are included. 

 You can help us break barriers too. Sign up with your email or follow us on social media for new and current health updates at @deafhealthaccess.

Lack of access for the deaf community in healthcare is a serious problem. Nearly 70% of physicians recognized that they are at risk of a lawsuit under the ADA for not providing accommodations. That’s unacceptable. We see that there are many barriers in healthcare, and we want to break these barriers down. But how do we plan on doing that? We want to empower you with accessible healthcare content and support in ASL. JOIN US and be part of the change.
