DeafMD’s (http://www.deafmd.org/) website provides health information in American Sign Language to the Deaf & Hard of Hearing population. Using health information created by two trustworthy and unbiased government sources-the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institutes of Health, DeafMD’s team of healthcare providers, linguists, and educators translates this complex information into ASL.
DeafMD contains 4 distinct, informative sections: Diseases & Illnesses, Understanding Tests, News, & Find a Deaf Friendly Doctor. While each section is different, each one is specifically designed to promote a better understanding and knowledge of health. Navigate to the Disease & Illness section, the Understanding Tests section, or the News section, and a video will begin to play discussing how to use each section.
