Hearing Loss Association of America, Salt Lake Chapter Meeting, Saturday March 21, 10-12

Are you researching your options and have questions on what to expect? Do you know what to expect once you friend or family member gets a new hearing device? I know from past experience while traveling the rocky road of hearing loss with my grandmother, previous Panels held at HLAA meetings helped me understand what to expect, from both the medical profession and the individuals who depend on the devices for daily life. Join us for a great panel discussion.
