Hearing Loss Association of America
The Hearing Loss Association of Virginia Beach is a Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) www.hearingloss.org and serves the entire Hampton Roads VA community. Please spend some time looking through the National HLAA website as it provides a wealth of information about hearing loss, technology, educational Webinars, and late breaking news. Events such as the HLAA Walk for Hearing www.hearingloss.org/programs-events/walk4hearing are also included. We have also included a listing of websites that provide useful information for someone new to hearing loss or for those who just want to gain new information (including families and spouses).
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic the Officers of the Chapter felt it was prudent for the safety of all concerned to suspend in-person meetings and to use Zoom technology to reach out to our members, friends and supporters. The good news is that are meetings are close captioned through the generosity and support of Access Virginia www.accessvirginia.info Zoom technology is easy to use, if you are interested in attending a Chapter Zoom meeting just send an email to [email protected] (Chapter President) or [email protected] We will add you to our Zoom listing and register you for the meeting. Then you will receive an email with a link to the meeting. Click the link at the time/date specified and you're in. Right now the Zoom meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month beginning at 1 PM and ending about 2:30 PM Remember, you have to send in your email address to register for the meetings.
After making this change in May 2020 we realized there were many advantages to using this medium. It is easier for everyone to attend meetings; we can still have top notch speakers on a variety of hearing loss topics; and we can expand our reach even outside the Hampton Roads area.
