HLAA WEBINAR:
Coping With The Coronavirus and Isolation

Dear Members and Friends of HLADE,

Since we all know that our statewide HLADE support group meetings are cancelled for the foreseeable future, we want you to know that we hope to keep you connected and supported to other deaf and hard of hearing people online.

The Hearing Loss Association of America(HLAA) just posted this video on isolation. We urge you to listen to Dr. Harvey's advice and suggestions.

If you do have a hearing health need during this Co-Vid 19 health crisis, please contact us at hlade@comcast.netor (302)388-9459 (V/TEXT/visual voicemail)

Stay safe and be well!

Linda
