Thanks to Sharzad Cohen for coming to educate us on the causes and treatment options for the very challenging condition of tinnitus. Her presentation was so informative and extensive that there wasn’t time to go through it all, and the audience had many questions on this troublesome disability.
Understanding and managing tinnitus with Dr. Sharzad Cohen.
This presentation is designed to explain different theories about the causes of tinnitus and the available therapeutic methods. A review of the recent research about tinnitus and the relationship between tinnitus and hearing loss will be offered. Tinnitus management techniques and instruments will be discussed to eradicate the myth that tinnitus has no solutions!
What a great 2019 Walk4Hearing event! The Los Angeles Chapter “LA Stars” team was again the top and most awesome team thanks to so many that participated and got the word out with their fundraising efforts. HLAA National and our chapter will greatly benefit from all the hard work as we embark on the rest of 2019 on to 2020 advocating for those with hearing loss.
The Walk welcomed over 500 walkers, were joined by 30 amazing teams, and raised over $50,000 and counting. Note that donations will continued to be accepted through July 31 so it’s not too late to contribute! Any questions can be addressed to our email@example.com email address. See below for the photo gallery highlighting the Walk.
Despite poor weather and illnesses, we had a nice turnout and a great time at our annual Memorial party held graciously at Sandy’s home. I guess you could say that no matter what the weather may look like, we still know how to party!
We will need to change the location for our party and need your help to bring chairs and tables. See below for further details.
Unfortunately, there wasn’t a safe and easy way to handle the parking needs for our party so we will need to change the location. Our very own Sandy will host this year which includes plenty of parking. If you have RSVP’d already or will soon do so, her address will be forwarded to you via email very soon. Please note we need your help to bring chairs and tables if you can. You can let us know when you RSVP, reply back to the email with Sandy’s address, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our chapter will be supplying wraps and chicken as a main course along with water and paper goods. The rest will be potluck, so please let us know what you will be bringing! Please see below for more information.
DATE: Sunday May 26th, 2019
WHERE: Sandy’s home. Once you RSVP, address information will be provided.

The fun is just starting! Here’s a recap of the second half of meeting.
Following a long break, we reconvened for chapter business. Our wonderful Wendi Washington, Walk4Hearing Team Captain, gave an update on this year’s 5k fundraising event, which will be on Saturday, June 8, at Marina Green Park in Long Beach. Registration is now open, so be sure to join our mighty LA Stars team and start fundraising now!
We had our best turnout yet since we moved to the Sherman Oaks library early last year. And not to disappoint, Katie Wright, a trainer with HLAA’s N-CHATT program (Network of Consumer Hearing Assistive Technology Trainers) did a great entertaining and informative session talking about the latest and greatest hearing assistive devices. Our own Liz Lesan assisted as well providing further information to members while they checked out the devices on their own.
2019 is underway, and so is HLAA-LA! We’ve planned a slate of informative meeting topics to help you navigate life as a person with hearing loss.
“Can’t hear your alarm in the morning? Worried about hearing your smoke alarm in the middle of the night? Want to know if your Amazon package is at the door? No worries! I’ll bring various alerting devices for you to explore – doorbells, alarm clocks, phone ring flashers, sound signalers, pagers – to name just a few. Come check them out!”
The spirit of the season was in full swing at our annual holiday party, honoring HLAA-LA members and supporters. The large turnout gave us a chance to catch up with old and new friends by socializing and sharing advice about finding our happy place in the sometimes daunting world of hearing loss.
