Presenter:
Steven Gordon, Assistant United States Attorney – USDOJ

Assistant United States Attorney Steven Gordon will discuss a health care provider’s obligation to provide effective communication to patients (and companions) who are deaf or hard of hearing . Ensuring equal access in health care settings is necessary to comply with Federal law.

Mr. Gordon has been with the Department of Justice since 1995 and many of his recent cases come under the Department of Justice’s Barrier-Free Health Care Initiative targeting enforcement efforts on a critical area for individuals with disabilities – access to medical services and facilities.

Mr. Gordon invites your questions and will discuss recent enforcement actions and settlements including those in Northern Virginia.

All programs are captioned and ASL interpreted
Programs are free and open to the public
