April 5, 2017. As a tool to help promote the Public Relations and Advocacy activities of the Prince Edward Island Chapter of the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association, this new venture into blogging about life when one is hard of hearing, and about the work of the Chapter, is an adventure and a journey into the unknown.
First, here is a short summary about the Chapter: The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association, PEI Chapter
- Was formed in 2001
- Engages in advocacy for the hard of hearing
- Holds regular meetings with guest speakers on hearing related topics
- Fosters speech-reading classes
- Encourages hearing accessibility in public places
The blog will let you know about some of the activities – as they happen, rather than waiting for the semi-annual newsletter. It will also let you know about upcoming events. And it gives readers a chance to let the Chapter know about their challenges, successes, tips, and activities regarding hearing loss and our ability to lead active and happy lives.
To get you familiar with the Chapter, below is our most recent newsletter: CHHA PEI Newsletter Winter Spring 2017
