-- Thanks to Arnold Saslavsky NOISE (Network for Overcoming Increased Silence Effectively) is intended as a forum to discuss topics of concern to hard of hearing/ deaf medical professionals (human medicine, dental, nursing, veterinary, veterinary technicians, etc) world-wide.
It is also intended to be a means of support by linking hard of hearing/deaf medical professionals from various backgrounds and geographical regions.
The Deaf Resource Library was created in 1995 and is being maintained by myself, Karen Nakamura.
I'm an Associate Professor of Anthropology and East Asian Studies at Yale University.
