A community forum is a chance for people to share their views on an important issue. The goal of this event is to give the Deaf community a chance to discuss needs and priorities related to their health and disability.
Information from this session will be used by the MA Department of Public Health to develop a Health Needs Assessment Report.
Topics to consider: issues that affect your experience in healthcare; barriers that prevent meeting health needs; health insurance; transportation; finding doctors that meet your needs; and more.This event is a partnership between the MA Department of Public Health, Lurie Institute for Disability Policy, and DEAF, Inc.
