Abstract

In February 2022 the Washington State Department of Health hosted 4 virtual Listening Session to collect feedback and stories from disadvantaged individuals who had experienced inequities and/or racism in healthcare. The information gathered directly went toward writing new rules regarding continuing education requirements on health equity for all Healthcare providers in the state. Using WCAG 2.0 International standards and by reviewing the intersectionality between disability, socioeconomics and race, this paper reviews the accessibility of the department's efforts to reach these disadvantaged populations so they could participate in the Listening Sessions or contribute their experience and shape the definitions of state rules.
