This paper describes the methodological process involved in the transliteration, from English into American Sign Language, of the 12-item Short Form Health Survey, and gives an example of how these future physicians can work with members of the Deaf community to improve the community's overall health and wellbeing. The paper will also provide clear evidence of the need for strong support for research, as well as the need for widespread collaboration and participation on the part of the Deaf community.
