In June 2016 the National Academies of Sciences (the Academies) issued a groundbreaking report, Hearing Health Care for Adults: Priorities for Improving Access and Affordability. The recommendations accurately reflect the needs, concerns, and frustrations that consumers face when making hearing health care decisions, including whether to seek treatment at all. HLAA is proud to be the only consumer organization to serve as one of the sponsors of the report.
Implementation of the report’s twelve recommendations could change the face of hearing health care, but we can’t do it alone.
WHAT HLAA IS DOING
We have created a campaign on Change.org to spread the word about the report to everyone who has an interest in or is touched by hearing loss in some way.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
- Go to our Change.org campaign. There you will find more information about the campaign and links to the report.
- Sign on to the campaign by completing the information on the right side of the screen, underneath "Sign this Petition".
- Share the link on your social media feeds such as Facebook and Twitter, tell your friends, tell your doctor…tell everyone you can!
Lastly, as progress is made toward implementation, we will post updates to the Change.org page so be sure to check back.
