    Representatives of the DC government Office of Disability Rights and Office of Human Rights will describe how their offices support people with hearing loss. This will include their work on enforcing the Americans with Disabilities Act and what it means for us.

  3. Program on Advocacy
    Lise Hamlin, HLAA’s Director of Public Policy will discuss and answer questions about HLAA’s (the national organization, not the DC chapter) advocacy work. Efforts to advocate for passage of legislation to make over the counter hearing aids a reality (and to assure that they are regulated to provide assurances of effectiveness) is just an example, though an important one.
