Each of us has a story—several really—that goes beyond our hearing loss, our hearing aids and the challenges we face living with them. What‘s your story? Have you used your talents—your writing, your art, your music, your voice—to share your story with others?
Stu Nunnery and Laurel Jonason will share excerpts from their new screenplay, Good Enough, to illustrate how authentic, three-dimensional characters go beyond their hearing loss to turn what once was “perfect” into “good enough” and how Hollywood has begun to take note.

Stu is a member of the Association of Adult Musicians with Hearing Loss and for his activism in the hearing loss population, Stu is a Phonak “hEARo” and a “HearStrong Champion.”
