Speaker Alison Freeman, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist who works part-time at California State University at Northridge (CSUN) with both hearing and hard of hearing/deaf/Deaf students.

HLAA Veterans Across America virtual meeting
“What’s in your Hearing Rucksack?”
Speaker: Juliette Sterkens
Most people with hearing loss will say they can hear just fine but that they have difficulty understanding speech, particularly in background noise, watching TV or while attending religious services, a lecture or theater performances even when using the most modern, up-to-date hearing aids. This lecture will go beyond hearing aids and will help you become an informed consumer to get the hearing care and technology from the VA that will work for you.
Juliëtte Sterkens is the HLAA Hearing Loop Advocate and professional advisor to HLAA on Hearing Loop Technology.
