Video Transcript: Accessible communication is vital in health care.

KYLE DECARLO: Hello! My name is Kyle DeCarlo. I’m the Managing Founder of the Deaf Health Initiative - DHI for short.

TITLE: What is the Deaf Health Initiative?

Really, DHI’s goal is to improve the hospital experience for deaf and hard-of-hearing patients. Our organization has workshops for medical students and medical professionals to educate them on how to best care and communicate with deaf patients.
