We are thrilled to welcome Mitch Joel to our conference this year. Mitch is a very dynamic individual who engages with the audience in a very entertaining yet informative way,” said Christopher Sutton National Executive Director, Canadian Hard of Hearing Association.
Sutton continues, “People living with hearing loss encounter barriers at every turn – making a doctor’s appointment, discussing a project with a work colleague, enjoying a family get-together, accessing education, attending their place of worship, even enjoying a meal in a restaurant. Access to communication can be so frustrating that often people give up and isolate themselves from actively participating in activities that mean the most to them. The CHHA Educational Conference & Trade Show is one of the many programs created by the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association that connects people and is the only fully communication accessible event in Canada where ones hearing loss is not a barrier.”
Stayed tuned to our social media channels and our website for more information on speakers and full program in the weeks to come.
