Our Mission:

To promote an understanding of the health needs of culturally Deaf people.

Our Goals:

To reduce the differences in illness, injury, disability, or death experienced by a minority group compared with the majority group. 

These differences are called "Health Disparities." 

 

The Deaf community, as a linguistical minority population, experiences more health issues as compared to the hearing population.

Our Solutions:

  • To address health disparities between Deaf and hearing populations by having Deaf communities working together with healthcare researchers and providers

  • Our ultimate goal is to deliver health information in ASL to bring the Deaf Community up to the par in health literacy
