We are pleased to announce the launch of a new local web site called www.healthbridges.info
This site was created by local people who are Deaf, Deaf-blind and hard of hearing. The site is for people who are Deaf, Deafblind and hard of hearing and for health providers and insurers too.
This newly developed website seeks to provide reliable health and advocacy related information in a format that is accessible to all. Each month the topics discussed will change.
You are invited to visit the site and provide ideas about topics that you want to learn more about.
This month the site will offer these features:
1) An Accommodation Card that you can use to advocate for yourself when you go to a doctor’s office or hospital
2) A resource directory about area social supports
3) Information about your rights and the obligation of health care providers under the Americans with Disability Act
4) Films about topics of interest made by people that you know
Please visit the site www.healthbridges.info today and let us know what you want to learn or share
