HLAA-LA members joined thousands of other March for Science attendees in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, April 22, 2017, to show support for a cause that touches the lives of everyone with hearing loss. As President Heather Lehr explained, our goal was not to march against anyone or anything, but rather to show our support for government-supported research, while spreading awareness about hearing loss and hearing loss technology.
Our March 25th Chapter Meeting – Steering Committee Elections, PLUS Law Enforcement and Hearing Loss!
We have a real treat for our March chapter meeting: special guest speaker Sgt. Dan Widman, 23-year veteran of the LAPD, currently the Field Operations Supervisor, North Hollywood Division, AND the son of our very own President Pat Widman! Sgt. Widman will speak to us about a very important topic: how to interact with Law Enforcement when you have a hearing loss.
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.
