How do I get in the loop you ask? Information about this hearing loop technology will be presented by Dr. Juliette Sterkens, audiologist and hearing loop advocate. Dr. Sterkens will lecture on hearing loss in America, demonstrate how telecoil equipped hearing aids work in a looped environment, and finally tell how to get in the loop. Many hearing aid users may already have a telecoil built into their hearing aid and may not be aware of this feature or the venues offering hearing loop service. The Waukesha Civic Theatre, for example, is one of four looped venues in the area.
Get in the hearing loop on Monday, June 9 1 p.m. This informational talk with be held at the Waukesha Civic Theatre located at 264 W. Main Street, Waukesha. There is no cost to attend. Registration is preferred, but not required. To register or find additional information, visit http://www.wcfls.org/
