ASL Videos

Emergency Department Translation Project

In a collaboration between Partners in Deaf Health and Strong Memorial Emergency Department, several American Sign Language videos were created for patients being discharged from the Emergency Department. In total, we created fourteen discharge videos. All videos were created and produced at the University of Rochester with the guidance of Dr. Jason Rotoli (a sign-fluent Emergency physician). The videos feature a diverse group of Deaf and hearing sign-fluent community members describing information in ASL including:
