The medical students will become patients and will have to learn how to communicate with Deaf doctors and nurses to get the health care they need. This fun and exciting event will take place at the University of Rochester Medical Center on August 28, 2015 from 8:30 to 3:30pm.
You will be paid about $50 for your participation. Free lunch and a t-shirt will also be provided to all participants.
