Singleton, J. (2014, July). Healthy Aging in the Deaf Community. Workshop to be presented at the conference of the National Association of the Deaf. Atlanta, GA. July 2014.
Abstract: Our nation is paying greater attention to the health challenges faced by the aging population—including management of chronic diseases such as diabetes, coping with declines in cognitive functioning such as dementia. Are the proposed solutions and initiatives designed to address these challenges accessible and culturally appropriate for the Deaf Community? Georgia Tech leads a research effort (TechSAge) investigating how different disability communities experience these challenges. We engage with those communities to develop ideas for new technologies and solutions to promote healthy aging. How can our Deaf community best manage increasing health, mobility, vision, and memory challenges? Let’s discuss!
