The monthly Deaf Health Talks are organized and hosted by the University of Michigan Department of Family Medicine, with Partners in Deaf Health and Michigan Deaf Health. They are held on Facebook Live and Zoom on the third Thursday of every month from 8-9PM Eastern.

Physical fitness should be open to all!

This event is geared towards deaf and hard of hearing viewers, and will be presented in American Sign Language with some spoken English translation.
There will be time for questions, and Janna will lead a brief exercise demonstration.
