NCDHR Data Blitz!

Researchers and community partners from the Rochester Prevention Research Center: National Center for Deaf Health Research (NCDHR) will present at this month’s SRB Data Blitz! in the Saunders Research Building atrium.

The SRB Data Blitz!, a monthly series from the CTSI, brings a different research group to the Saunders atrium each month to present their work. Led by Steven L. Barnett, M.D., the NCDHR is planning to present the following:

  • NCDHR research posters covering the following topics:
    -Results and methods from the Deaf Weight Wise clinical trial
    -Informed consent research study with deaf people
    -Survey methods and sign-language video surveys
  • The Bridges to the Doctorate Program, a joint venture with Rochester Institute of Technology that supports the education of deaf scientists.
  • Sign language videos produced by NCDHR, including a breastfeeding PSA and several public health journal articles that have been translated into sign language .
  • The Deaf Strong Hospital program, whereby deaf people set up a mock healthcare system in the lobby of the School of Medicine and Dentistry as a role reversal exercise for hearing first-year medical students.

Coffee and cookies will be served. Be there, and get Blitzed!
