More Than Medicine  Joseph Heng MD Internal Medicine Resident
Joseph Heng is a first-year internal medicine resident at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. As one of a handful of deaf doctors here, and the only one with a cochlear implant, he is particularly interested in addressing the challenges that hearing impairment places on health care delivery. He explains that the barriers are more than inconveniences; they are patient safety issues. Learn more about Heng and the Deaf Health Initiative in Hopkins Medicine magazine.
