We are pleased to announce that Casey Davis, the Founder and CEO of Deaf MD, has joined our Deaf and Hard of Hearing Advocacy Committee.
Casey Davis is a nationally certified emergency medicine physician assistant who has turned a graduate school thesis into a passion of service to the Deaf & Hard of Hearing Community. Using his own personal funds that he was able to set aside from his primary source of employment, Mr. Davis designed and developed a video-driven health education website that provides vital information for this vastly underserved community in their primary and preferred language of American Sign Language (ASL). Since the launch in September 2008, DeafMD has welcomed over 160,000 visitors and more than 600,000 page views. Through their tireless efforts, Mr. Davis and his selfless team of volunteers have changed the way the Deaf community understands their health.
The CILSF’s Deaf & HOH Committee brings together individuals from all over the United States interested in addressing the concerns of the community, and work to enhance services. To join the Committee, contact Marc at firstname.lastname@example.org.
