And how community health workers can build a culture of accessibility into their practices.

About the talk
In order to ensure that all people have equal access to healthcare, community health organizations and workers must ensure that their websites and digital communications, including emails and PDF documents, are usable by people of all abilities. This is especially important in today’s age of electronic record systems, reminder emails, and virtual appointments. In addition to being a vital part of providing equitable care, website, and digital communication, accessibility is a legal requirement under the ADA and ACA.
- Learn current laws related to digital accessibility and how they apply to community health workers.
- Gain a clear understanding of what digital accessibility means.
- Understand how to identify and test for common accessibility issues on websites and in emails or PDF documents so that you can begin developing a plan to improve accessibility in your patient communications.
