Bob will be talking about the history of the organization, the local chapter, and some upcoming events. Sertoma supports hearing health through their programs and mission activities.

2nd Speaker: Toni Barrient- Enhancing cochlear implant & hearing aid use with t-coils
Turn Hearing Aids and Cochlear Implants Into Mini Loudspeakers
If you have a t-coil but are not using it, you are missing out. Learn about expanding the use of your hearing aids and cochlear implants with t-coils! You will be amazed. If you don’t know if you have a t-coil, ask your hearing aid dispenser. All CI’s have one. Have you used your telecoil recently? Telecoils are everywhere, from theaters to classrooms and churches.
Toni Barrient, retired Director of Member Services and Chapter Development, Hearing Loss Association of America, will discuss the many uses for T-Coil equipped hearing aids and cochlear implants. She will also demonstrate devices that can be used with and without hearing aids in noisy environments.
