Information from the IL Deaf and Hard of Hearing Commission (IDHHC), courtesy of Linda Belice:
Are you an individual that wants to have an opportunity to provide input or share ideas on how communication accessibility can be provided in a disaster situation? Yes? Then you should attend one of the meetings below! The meetings are structured to both educate and determine community perspective on health care in disaster situations. The concept of crisis standards of care (CSC) will be shared to gain a better understanding about the need to focus on goals of disaster preparedness.
The meetings are being hosted by the Illinois Department of Public Health in collaboration with the Chicago Department of Public Health. See below and the attached flyer for meeting dates and locations.
Interpreters have been requested for the Tuesday, June 21st meeting. If you need to request interpreter services for another meeting/date, please contact 312.906.6064.
