Check out the latest edition of The Hearing Loss Californian!

The quarterly newsletter of HLAA-CA, the Hearing Loss Association of America, California State Association, is edited by our very own Grace Tiessen. Inside this edition, you’ll find articles from HLAA-LA chapter members Mitzi Shpak (page 2), and Liz Lesan (page 8), who shares her experiences as a first-time attendee at the HLAA National Convention last June. There’s also a lovely, well-deserved tribute to Nanci Linke-Ellis, who is retiring from her position as HLAA-CA SoCal Chapter Coordinator.
