Topic: Advocacy During the Pandemic: Tips and Resources for People with Hearing Loss

When the pandemic hit and shutdowns across the country began, HLAA immediately pivoted from our day to day advocacy to working on providing information and education about how to survive the pandemic with a hearing loss. In this webinar, we will talk about what HLAA is seeing and hearing across the country and will provide tips and resources to help you advocate for access during and after the coronavirus pandemic.

Registration is required for HLAA webinars. Should you have any questions, please contact webinars@hearingloss.org.
