Hearing Loss Association of America, and their great website, from which we glean our purposes, news, some statistics and more.

Hearing Loss Association – Florida – for input, information and encouragement, with a special mention of their President, Debbe Hagner, who has hosted many of our meetings on Zoom since that need began – thank you!

Fort Piece Lions Club – who have co-sponsored many lip reading classes with our Chapter, plus co-sponsored our Hearing Loss Symposiums. You show how working with another non-profit can be a win-win for everyone involved! We have worked now with 5 Lions Presidents and brought a great skill that transcends ordinary communications into greater communications. Our Lip Reading League keeps growing, and we are encouraged!
