Did you see us at the fair? Central Oklahoma Chapter Hearing Loss Association of America (COC HLAA) said, “Hello” to hundreds of Oklahomans with hearing loss during the Senior Day at the Oklahoma State Fair. We had one simple question – Do you know anyone with hearing loss? Spouses and friends pointed to each other, children pointed to parents, and parents pointed to teens. We invited everyone to get their hearing checked and join us for meetings. We also spoke to local organizations about hearing access and hearing loss presentations available through our organization. If you know anyone living with hearing loss, please invite them to join COC HLAA for a meeting. Together we are stronger!
COC HLAA offers two meetings each month for your convenience. Meetings are hearing friendly and they are captioned too so you can see what was said. Join us in the evening on the second Monday each month at 6:30PM and on the third Thursday at 1:30PM. All meetings are held at Lakeside Methodist Church, 2925 NW 66 and they are free. There is no charge to become a member of our chapter, to subscribe to our monthly newsletter, or to visit the Hearing Helpers Demonstration Room (HHR), 5100 N Brookline, suite 100. The HHR is open Monday-Friday, 10-3. For more information about Hearing Loss Association of America Central Oklahoma Chapter visit our website — OKCHearingLoss.org.
