Podcast Interviews With Those In-the-Know About Heath Literacy


Making Health Information Accessible to People with Disabilities (HLOL #212)

Liz Persaud is the Program and Outreach Manager for Tools for Life, Georgia’s Assistive Technology Act Program at the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation (CIDI) within the College of Design at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She is a nationally recognized public speaker and advocate addressing the need to build bridges and solidify gaps between individuals living with and without disabilities. Persaud does this through education, advocacy, and a focus on technology and disability.

John Rempel also works at CIDI, serving as a Quality Assurance Manager. He oversees initiatives related to digital accessibility and user experience. Rempel has extensive training and experience in disabilities and accessibility. Much of his work centers on low vision and blindness rehabilitation.

Helen Osborne talks with Persaud and Rempel about:

  • Making health information accessible to people with disabilities. Why it is essential to communicate in ways that everyone can understand.
  • How CIDI is helping. This includes a project with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to create accessible resources about COVID-19 along with numerous other services, resources, and training programs.
  • Tips and recommendations to start making your health information accessible to all, including for those who have disabilities.
