https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xed9FhxpUEM

The groundbreaking documentary on hearing loss — ”We hear you, now hear us” — which won best disability film award in June 2021 at Cannes World Film Festival is now available on YouTube.

We Hear You features 4 women, each confronting stigmas, setbacks and successes, as they strive to live well despite the challenges of hearing loss. They share their stories in hopes of building awareness, community, and a more inclusive world.

Watch it (again) and send it to your friends.  Help grow awareness which can make the lives of all hearing impaired a little easier.

Participants Wanted for Research Study !

CliniContact is partnering with Harvard Medical School and working on a promising research study investigating premature age-related hearing loss affecting individuals between the ages of 40 and 65 to determine if these individuals have more genetic risk factors than people with typical onset hearing loss.

Participants for the study are currently being recruited with compensation offered for each visit.   Control participants are also needed in addition to children of those diagnosed with presbycusis.   Participants will earn up to $30 for a brief visit or $100 for completing the study.

Learn about OTC Hearing Aids

One year since over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids were introduced to the U.S. market, adoption of this new technology is still emerging. These new products are another pathway to care as an option to conventional prescription hearing aids and have the potential to benefit millions of adults with untreated mild to moderate hearing loss.

On November 1, HLAA is presenting the first of four online events in our OTC 101 – Ask the Experts Webinar Series. During these one-hour Zoom events, industry and government professionals will share their expertise, clear up confusion and answer your questions.

Are Over-the-Counter Hearing Aids for You?
