CREEC is investigating effective communication in medical settings

CREEC is collaborating with our friends at the Colorado Association of the Deaf and the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition to investigate hospital and doctor’s office policies for providing interpreters.   If you are deaf or hard of hearing and have had an experience with a doctor or hospital that

  • refused to provide an interpreter when you requested it;
  • refused to provide other necessary aids or services to communicate with you; or
  • failed to provide effective communication (i.e., quality of interpreting services)

we would like to talk with you.   You can email us at or visit our Hospital and Doctor Interpretation Investigation page.

Please help us get the word out!
