Free Webinar - Implementing the ADA in a Health Care Setting
Wednesday March 25, 2020 12:00pm ET - 1:00pm ET.
Presenters: Joe Zesski, Program Manager, Northeast ADA Center
Sally Heron, Ithaca Center Manager, Planned Parenthood of Greater New York
People with disabilities face a variety of potential barriers in accessing health care. The physical environment, communication, policies, and a provider's lack of disability awareness can pose challenges for patients with disabilities, their companions, and for health care employees with disabilities. This webinar will provide an overview of these general challenges and then share the lessons learned from the Northeast ADA's collaboration with Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes (PPSFL); now known as Planned Parenthood of Greater New York. PPSFL is a small health care provider that has partnered with the Northeast ADA on a research effort known as a Customized Service Agreement (CSA). The research project is intended to assist partners to better implement the ADA into their organizations. Joe Zesski and Sally Heron will address what the CSA has meant for the Northeast ADA and PPSFL, and describe what has been gained as a result.
