CAMP HILL — PCN has a long history of supporting Pennsylvanians with its mission to be responsive to the needs and interests of the commonwealth and its people. To continue this mission during this challenging time, PCN continues its coverage of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
On Tuesday, PCN’s “Coronavirus Impact” segment will feature a one-on-one interview with special guest Debi, one of Pennsylvania’s few Certified Deaf Interpreters. Debi’s expertise is currently utilized to interpret Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine and Governor Tom Wolf’s daily press conferences on the coronavirus for Pennsylvania’s deaf and hard of hearing community.
She also offers her assistance for other interpreting jobs that take her into the courtroom. Debi was born into an all-deaf family and has been fluent in sign language her whole life. During the interview, she conveyed the importance of her facial expressions, especially the eyebrows, as an expressive tool to convey words.
Watch this special segment at noon and again at 8 p.m. Tuesday on cable and streaming free on the PCN app. For more information, visit pcntv.com.
