Chapter President Katherine Bouton will facilitate an interactive meeting on challenges for people with hearing loss posed by the holidays. Come with your own stories of problems faced and problems solved. No one knows these situations better than the person who has been there. Come share your experiences.
Kelly Tremblay, PhD. at the University of Washington, will discuss the role of the brain in hearing, and how auditory rehabilitation strengthens that brain function. She will also introduce a new interactive app for measuring restaurant noise, IHearU. We hope HLAA-NYC will take the lead in making this program indispensable for people with -- and without -- hearing loss.
Members are invited to join us in reviewing the year's events and planning for the coming year, including the election of new board members. We will also present our annual student awards at this event, and we will honor community members for their work on behalf of people with hearing loss.
Former New York City Police Office Daniel Carione discusses his four-year legal battle to change the NYPD's policy on hearing aids.
