Healthy Communication

Sokhan Sok, a deaf immigrant from Cambodia, has struggled in the past to find health care resources that were tailored to his unique communication needs. That is why Sokhan's participation in the Deaf Immigrant Center for Education (DICE) at HCMC has been so significant. DICE exists to help immigrant and deaf or hard of hearing patients and families communicate effectively in medical settings and the community. Through the support of professional medical interpreters and Deaf Community Health Workers, Sokhan is a more empowered, educated patient. DICE equips him with the knowledge and confidence to ask questions and make decisions about his own health care, as well as overcome the communication barriers that challenge him every day.
