Are you an adult with hearing loss or a family member/friend of an adult with hearing loss, and passionate about making a difference in the community?

Join our innovative research project to revamp the Active Communication Education program to improve the communication and social emotional wellbeing of older people with hearing loss.

Collaborate in a 1.5-hour focus group discussion with others who have experienced hearing loss. Help shape the future of a tailored group education program addressing the specific needs of individuals with hearing loss and their families.

Together, let's empower adults with hearing loss to overcome communication challenges and enhance their lives through expanded audiological care. Be a catalyst for change and make a lasting impact in hearing health!
