September 19th Meeting
9:30 am to Noon
Meeting on Zoom
Communicating with a mask
The September program will include a presentation from Nathan Gomme, the Executive Director for the NMCDHH. Nathan has presented for us in the past, and we are very excited to have him back.
This will be our first meeting on Zoom. See the guidance in the current Newsletter - September issue of Wired for Sound - See item below.
The presentation will begin with a brief zoom tutorial from Nathan so that all members have an opportunity to get comfort- able using the zoom video conference system. This brief tutorial will allow members to take what they will learn from Nathan and apply it to other personal or professional zoom meetings they might have.
The presentation will mainly focus on resources and informa- tion that can be helpful when communicating with a mask on. Our questions will include: “How do individuals normally com- municate with a mask on?” and “What has been done to educate the hearing community?” The presentation will also include tips and tricks for communicating with a mask on and technology re- sources that you might have at your disposal to assist with com- munication
Our "Resources" page has a wide variety of information ranging from Guidelines for Purchasing Hearing Aids to Medicines That Can Effect Your Hearing.
