Michael McKee will be speaking about a grant proposal to help elucidate how stigmatization in health care affects the quality of health care and access to care among Deaf American Sign Language (ASL) users and characterize their main sources.  Both preliminary and published data illustrate that Deaf ASL individuals report a repetitive pattern of negative experiences with health care providers and institutions.  Medical advancements and public health safety net systems have failed to achieve health equity for Deaf ASL users.
