Welcome to Deaf-Centric Hospital
Limited to 50 Participants
When: Saturday, March 25th
Time: UNMC Student Participants 1:00PM-5:00PM
(Other Team Members- 9:00AM-5:00PM)
Where: Sorrel Building - Room 2010
In this role-playing exercise, the UNMC students become "patients" who seek medical attention from "doctors", who are members of the local Deaf community. Our goal is for students to come away with possible solutions and resources which can reduce healthcare inequities in this community. 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. UNMC students will interact with Deaf/hard of hearing community members who have been trained to act as physicians and other healthcare professionals (pharmacists, receptionists, dentists, etc.).
