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