There are few Deaf scientists, and we would like to change that. The University of Rochester will host the second biennial Deaf-Engaged Academic Forum (DEAF-ROC Conference) with the theme, Navigating Deaf and Hearing Collaborations in Science on August 8 and 9, 2019. The conference will bring together aspiring and successful Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing scientists and Hearing faculty mentors from across the nation to network and build a community.
We have a stellar lineup of keynote speakers:
The event will also feature short talks, breakout sessions, a panel discussion and a poster session.
Register for the conference (for free) and submit a poster abstract by Monday, July 1. If you have questions, please contact Stefanie Fingler.
Friday, August 9 at 8:30am to 3:00pm
