CCAC Message to CDC
August 13, 2015 Comments Off on CCAC Message to CDC
This is our second message to you concerning the omission of 48 million Americans with hearing loss and deafness who were ignored, not mentioned at all, and excluded from your recent report about people with disabilities (http://www.cdc.gov/mmWR/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6429a2.htm).
Please reply to explain your apparent mistake. A new survey is indicated. Yes, we communicate, by captioned phone, by ordinary phones (many use them), email, the Internet, in and among our many valued associations, social media, and more. How about a CDC video with quality captioning asap to invite us to respond also?
