When: Saturday, April 6th
: 10:00AM - 3:30PM
Where: UNMC Campus - TBD


In this role-playing exercise, students, providers and staff become "patients" who seek medical attention from "doctors", who are members of the local Deaf community. Our goal is that participants come away with possible solutions and resources for effective communication which can contribute to reduced healthcare inequities. The subtler lesson is that Deaf people aren’t broken, but the medical system has the potential to break them.

Deaf-Centric Hospital will mimic what hospitals and doctor's offices look like in today’s world.  Students, providers and staff will interact with Deaf/hard of hearing community members who have been coached to act as physicians and other healthcare professionals (pharmacists, receptionists, dentists, etc.).
