Upcoming Events

Future HLAA Albany Events:

Wednesday, September 13, 5:30-7:30 PM — Safety and Survival Strategies for People with Hearing Loss — William K. Sanford Town Library, 629 Albany Shaker Road, Albany NY

Persons with hearing loss are often at a disadvantage when it comes to emergency situations. Our hearing loss may affect our ability to prevent or identify potential situations.

Joe Marchese, retired Deputy Director of Criminal Justice for the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services, and a cochlear implant user, will talk about managing these situations.

This program will focus on basic safety and survival skills for persons with hearing loss, with general strategies for our special needs.

Discussions will apply to home, travel, and public areas, with consideration of natural/man-made disasters, as well as violence/terrorist acts. Participants will leave with a safety action plan.
