Mission: The Mission of HLAA is to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss by providing information, education, support and advocacy. HLAA is the nation’s leading organization representing people with hearing loss. Hearing loss is the third largest public health issue after heart disease and arthritis. 48 million (20 percent) Americans have some degree of hearing loss.
Held annually, the HLAA convention is completely hearing accessible to people with hearing loss. A wide-range of up-to-date information is made available to attendees and hearing health professionals through educational workshops that are eligible for CEUS, a research symposium, and a large trade show exhibiting the latest hearing assistive technology.
