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.

Let’s Go to the Movies!

On February 15th our HLAA Chapter will be watching an open caption movie instead of our usual meeting. Join us in the Lecture Hall at the Sanderson Community Center, 5709 South 1500 West, Taylorsville, at 10 am for: Moonlight Sonata: Deafness in Three Movements. There will be a short intermission so we can snack and visit.

Picnic in the Park

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 hearinglossutah@gmail.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.
