CHV is sponsoring a virtual information session on over-the-counter hearing aids. Our speaker will be Russ Misheloff, past president of the Hearing Loss Association of America – DC area chapter, who currently serves on the chapter’s Executive Board. The chapter and the national organization provide support to members, and information on communication strategies and hearing assistive technology as well as outreach and advocacy services for those living with hearing loss. For that purpose, Russ tries to keep current on new technology; the social, professional, health, and psychological implications of hearing loss; and personal strategies that enable persons with this loss to live full and rewarding lives.
While Russ is not a professional in the hearing field, his experience with hearing loss is extensive and will provide CHV members with practical information that will help them decide whether they should investigate OTC hearing aids for themselves.
The hour-long session will provide ample time for questions. Russ will be joined in answering questions by members of the CHV Care Services Team and Vira Sisolak, a longtime CHV member who wore hearing aids for 15 years and now has cochlear implants in both ears.
