Join our HLAA chapter for a Picnic in the Park on June 15th from 11:00 – 1:00. We will be at Midvale City Park, 425 6th Ave, Midvale, UT. RSVPs are needed for a headcount, you can do that by emailing email@example.com. We will have plenty of good food and great company. There’s nothing like being with your ‘tribe’ of people; the people who get how to talk to you and don’t become impatient repeating. There’s less repeats because we know how to get your attention first then talk. It’s an amazing experience. Join us.
HLAA-SLC and DSDHH is teaming up for another Better Hearing and Speech month event this year. This year our workshop will be on Hearing Loss & Identity. Hearing loss can affect our personalities and we lose the person we think are. We are embarrassed by it and we hide it making it feel shameful. Let’s discuss that, go over the past and find out why we might think that way. During the second presentation we will share some tool for accepting hearing loss and moving on our with our lives.
On either side of those presentations we’ll be having fun with a hearing loss quiz and prizes, food and more. Join us by registering at the link below. The event brings together good people, fun times and maybe you’ll learn a few things too.
