Hearing Aids and Your Hearing
October’s program will be a presentation by Jeff Grama M.A. an established audiologist from the Los Angeles area that was recorded on YouTube by the LA chapter of HLAA. His talk is entitled: Hearing Aids and Your Hearing – Learn the Latest advances in hearing aid technology. Jeff has been an audiologist for over 40 years. He discusses a bit of history, the evolution of analog and digital technology, and all of the various terminology that is used by manufacturers to describe their features. He is clearly up to date on his information, so we look forward to sharing his program with our chapter.
