Sign Language Interpreters

Attendees can request a sign language interpreter for the Annual Meeting. A form will be available in June 2014.

On-site requests for interpreters can be made at the Accessibly Booth in the registration area; however, APHA cannot guarantee that the sign language provider will be able to accommodate the request without advance notice.

The Opening and Closing General Sessions will have sign language interpreters assigned to the program.

Assistive Listening Devices
A limited number of assistive listening devices will be available.  There is no charge for the use of these devices, available on a first-come, first-served basis.  This technology generally involves the installation of "transmitters" in the sessions you wish to attend. Sound is transmitted to headphones provided to the attendees.

It is suggested that you submit your Assistive Listening Device Form in advance of the Annual Meeting. Please email the form to access@apha.org.

Arrangements can be made onsite, but keep in mind that 24 hour advance notice is required in order to provide technicians with sufficient time to install the devices. Onsite requests can be made through the AVMG Audio Visual Office.
