Our Goals:

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

These differences are called "Health Disparities."

The Deaf community, as a linguistically minority population, experience 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
