• Disability Capitol Action Day at the State Capitol in Sacramento, May 20, 2015

    The HLAA-CA team (Ann Thomas, Debra Rogers, and Janel Edmiston) had a great day at the Disability Fair in Sacramento Wednesday, May 20, 2015.

    To raise awareness of hearing loss and to provide information about hearing loss, the Hearing Loss Association of America, California State Association (HLAA-CA) exhibited in the twelfth annual Disability Capitol Action Day at the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    The HLAA-CA’s booth provided information for those with hearing loss, including information about the latest phone captioning options, recent innovations in hearing aids, assistive listening devices, new technology, and HLAA services. Ann brought some assistive listening devices to demonstrate, two different personal amplifiers (pocket talkers), and a portable loop (see the loop and sign in the photos below). Ann also brought two different neckloops.
