Come Hear about HLAA Support for People with Hearing Loss
HLAA’s seeks to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss through information, support and advocacy. It does so by working to assure that:
- Hearing aids, cochlear implants and aural rehabilitation are affordable, accessible, and covered by Medicare, Affordable Care Act, and insurers;
- Public and private venues, including all types of public transportation are communication accessible;
- Television, Internet video programming, and movies make high quality captioning available;
- Consumers have wide choices and access to captioned and hearing-aid-compatible (HAC), high-fidelity, landline phones and mobile devices;
- Workplaces are communication accessible and welcoming to people with hearing loss.
Lise Hamlin, HLAA’s Director of Public Policy, will be open to talk about these and other HLAA activities and solicit your views about further ways that HLAA can be helpful. This will very much be a two-way dialogue.
