Julia Beems, Outreach Coordinator
from University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine,
will lead our April meeting. 

This presentation will be tailored to individuals who are hard of hearing. Emergency preparedness is the responsibility of ALL individuals. Many understand they need to make a plan, build a kit, and stay informed, but what does that mean for individuals who are hard of hearing?

Again thank you to Pamela Kreps, (phac@centurylink.net) for her presentation, “Hearing Loss and Cognitive Decline” at our March meeting. John Anderson who was scheduled to speak in April was unable to do his presentation at this time. He will be invited to speak in the fall.
