Ever wanted to talk with your hands? Imagine having a conversation with someone across a crowded room and never uttering a word with your mouth. ASL is a beautiful and expressive language that lets you chew and chat at the same time.
The theme of our February meeting is “Spring Forward,” as we celebrate our chapter’s growth and renewal. We will start things off with round-the-room introductions, which will give us a chance to briefly share about ourselves and hear each others’ stories. We will then discuss what’s in store for our chapter – future plans, fun times, and fresh leadership. We want to hear what you have to share! Please join us for what will be a lively and invigorating meeting.
A reminder! We now meet in the East Room of the Wingate Building at the Huntington Memorial Hospital, 100 W. California Ave, Pasadena.
The start of the 2017 HLAA-LA Chapter year got off to a great start at our new Huntington Hospital home! Finding the conference room for the meeting proved to be a little challenging but with the nearly full room of participants, it looked like people found their way just fine.
This is the first LA Cochlear Implant Group meeting of 2017! Cochlear Americas is speaking to us so please review the information provided below. Come and hear about the latest in their technology!!!
Hope to see many of you there!
We’re kicking off 2017 with a presentation from audiologist Jeff Grama, who’s been a good friend to HLAA for many years. Jeff will update us on the latest hearing aid technology and trends. Jeff is a great audiologist (many of our members are satisfied clients!), and can answer any of your audiology-related questions as well.
Remember – this is the first meeting in our NEW MEETING SPACE: the East Room of the Wingate Building at the Huntington Memorial Hospital, 100 W. California Ave, Pasadena.
It was a happening holiday party filled with fun, laughter and much needed catching up with friends we just don’t get to see enough of. As usual, Danny was our White Elephant host providing laughter and interesting insights to the various gifts received. Even without a loop! Any many thanks to Heather Lehr for opening up her wonderful home to the vast array of foods and invasion of numerous people. As far as we can tell, everyone was recognizable so no party crashers!
Come see HLAA-LA member Chris Grafil perform, along with other talented comedians, while helping out our chapter! The venue will be looped!
Surviving the Holidays with Hearing Loss – Rap Session & Potluck!
Our annual rap session is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season, as we discuss how to get through the holiday season with hearing loss. This year, we’ll engage in some role playing — acting out possible scenarios to help illustrate communication and coping strategies. It should be fun and educational, so please join us! Feel free to bring a dish, dessert or beverages for our potluck lunch following the meeting. Meeting newsletter can be viewed here.
