Ole Miss Pre-Med Student Launches Medical American Sign Language Website

About

Ashley Barker is currently a premedical senior at the University of Mississippi obtaining a B.S. in Biology with minors in Chemistry, Psychology, and Neuroscience. Most importantly she is hard of hearing. Being involved in the medical field as a hard of hearing premed allowed her to realize the separation of the hearing world and the deaf/hoh world, especially in medicine. She created this website for anyone that has a lack of knowledge of deaf/hoh community and to help individuals learn ASL; in hopes to better themselves as healthcare professionals. She truly believes EVERYONE should learn basic ASL. It is a necessity to combine our worlds.

Happy signing!
