Our Next Meeting is Nov 19, 2022 (Saturday)

10:00 am MDT

It will be a Zoom Meeting

For our November program we are delighted to host family members of individuals with hearing loss. Panel members can share their perspectives as they have navigated having a family member with a lifelong hearing loss, dealt with the frustrations of siblings who don’t hear them well, and of course the inevitable “you play the TV too loud!”. We hope you invite your family members
and/or significant others to join us for this month’s program.








Our facilitator for this gathering will be Michael Lovato, a trained group facilitator. Michael is a native New Mexican, and has taught the Intro to Veteran Counseling class. Michael’s resume can be found at
