At Our Last HCIL Location Focus Group Meeting
On June 4, at the group’s last meeting at the center, two people gave video testimonies, which assists us in the process of developing a documentary film telling our stories.

We also discussed changes to health care law with Section 1557 revisions of the Affordable Care Act.

Under the revised law, you have a choice of what works best for you regarding communication language access. On July 18, the law goes into effect, which reinforces that right.

At our meetings, the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities are telling us that a live interpreter matches their 3-D language needs.
