Regina Milgroom

Please join the Sun Lakes Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association on Thursday, April 12, 2018, from 12:45-2:30 p.m. at the Ed Robson Library, Lecky Center, 9330 E. Riggs Road, Sun Lakes.

Michele Michaels, AZ Commissioner for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, will present a program entitled Hearing Loss Advocacy in Arizona. If you are hard of hearing or know someone who is, there are times when you will need to advocate for yourself or others with hearing loss. Michele Michaels, Hard of Hearing Program Manager at ACDHH, is an advocacy expert. She will review self-advocacy strategies, including the BEEE method, that will benefit the hearing loss population.

You are not alone! If you, a family member or a friend is challenged by hearing loss, please come and join us for education, sharing and refreshments. All are welcome. You owe it to yourself! CART (real-time captioning) is provided, and the meeting room is looped, thanks to the Friends of the Library, for your hearing accessibility. Please park in the church lot next to the library. Thanks.
