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.
