May Meeting: Mini Tech Fair
Our program will be a Mini Tech-Fair. This will be an exhibit of some of the board members and other members’ favorite assis- tive listening devices. Our intent is to share what we use, and let you try them out for yourself. We all share challenges with hearing so join us to share our solutions. Some of the exhibits will include a mock “car” to share how to hear from the front or the back seat. We have also invited a representative from NMTAP (New Mexico Technical Assistance Program) and Caption Call, as well as NM- CDHH (New Mexico Commission for Deaf and Hard of Hearing) to share their iPad program. Join us for what promises to be a fun program.

The topic planned for our last monthly meetings before our summer break. 

June: Dr. Bradley Pickett MD - We will have Dr. Bradley Pickett join us to share his perspec-
tive on working with the patients who have hearing loss. How should be make sure our medical providers know about our hear- ing loss?
What kind of medical scenarios are most critical when we have a hearing loss? This promises to give us a point of view from the other side of the medical relationship with a hearing loss. Don’t miss our last meeting of the year before our July/Aug break!
