Date:   September 17, 2013

Time:  2:00pm-3:30pm Eastern Time (calculate the time for your location accordingly)

 Title:  Building Blocks for Accessible Health Care

 Description:  Join us to explore basic tools that health care providers can use to promote accessibility in health care delivery. Most people think that health care is accessible to people with disabilities, but barriers in communication, facility access and medical equipment can prevent people with disabilities from getting the care that they need. The Disabilities Resource Center at UPMC will share the structure of their approach to accessibility, lessons learned, basic tools and community partnerships developed to reduce barriers to healthcare service delivery. The building blocks for accessible health care can be used in hospitals, physician offices and outpatient centers
