Addressing Barriers to Care for Persons with Disabilities
December 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
A continuation of our Health Equity Workshop series, please join us to discuss the disparities in health outcomes among persons with disabilities, their barriers to care, and how a single payer healthcare system would help to alleviate some of those barriers.
We are joined by Dr. Amanda Hinson-Enslin, an assistant professor in the Department of Population and Public Health Sciences of the Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University, who will lead our discussion. We will also be joined by a panel of persons with hearing disabilities who will share their stories of interacting with the US healthcare system. ASL interpreters and closed captioning will be available.
