We are Outraged! People with Hearing Loss Ignored in Study

According to a new study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one out of every five adults has a disability. The study, Prevalence of Disability and Disability Type Among Adults, US, 2013, examined vision loss, cognition, mobility, self-care and independent living, but failed to study hearing loss. 

The CDC ignored 48 million Americans with hearing loss! HLAA is taking action with the White House and the CDC to see that swift and meaningful steps are taken to correct this gross error.

Today, a Call to Action is going to all HLAA members to write to the White House about this issue. If you have opted into our messages you will soon receive the message in your email inbox. If you haven't here is the Call to Action

HLAA fights for your rights, but your voice matters.
