Our mission is to help each other deal with our hearing loss
We are the local chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America, which is the nation’s foremost membership organization in promoting hearing loss advocacy, education and support.
The Hearing Loss Association of America, Lakeland Chapter, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating sessions where members can help each other to improve our hearing through:
? Education Our monthly meetings often feature expert guest speakers to keep us up to date on the latest hearing devices, treatments and other support resources in the community. The upcoming meeting is previewed on our website home page.
? Support We provide group discussions and one-on-one opportunities so every member can get the support they need. Our selection of free brochures and flyers, plus our experienced members, will help to identify many of the wonderful resources our community offers from a list of doctors and audiologists to suppliers of free phones and other services.
? Advocacy We promote hearing rights and access throughout our community. Our current lead project is to advocate for hearing loops within the Lakeland area. For more details, click on "Let’s Loop Lakeland" on our website. We are also promoting captioning at playhouses, movies and other appropriate venues.
Our chapter is dedicated to helping the hearing impaired. We work to advance our cause through interactions at our chapter meetings; community activities, such as our 'Hearing Wellness Expo'; local health fairs; speaking at communtiy clubs and organizations.
