National Center for Deaf Health Research (NCDHR):   www.urmc.rochester.edu/ncdhr/
From their website:

“The NCDHR partners with deaf and hard-of-hearing communities to promote health. The Center does not investigate prevention of hearing loss. Rather, it is concerned with finding ways to help deaf and hard-of-hearing communities eliminate health problems, such as heart disease, obesity, depression and other chronic health concerns.”
