Improving Communication for People
with Hearing Loss | March 14-15, 2017
We at the Center on Longevity thank you for joining us for the March 14-15, 2017 meeting at Stanford University for a discussion on hearing loss and its effect on communication and social engagement. This meeting is generously funded by members of the Stanford Center on Longevity Advisory Council, Katherine and David deWilde, and will serve as the initial step in a program of research that focuses on how to improve communication for those with hearing loss.
Using the “launch” model developed at the Center, this small group of distinguished experts who represent medicine, engineering, psychology, sociology, law, government, health economics, health policy, industry, technology and advocacy will convene to elaborate key issues, compile existing evidence and identify questions to which answers are needed in order to inform policies and improve programs surrounding hearing loss and communication.
This website has been created to provide you with information for the meeting, including the agenda, reading materials, a list of attendees, logistical information and contact information for Center on Longevity staff. If you require additional information or assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us and someone will assist you.
Please note, part of our conference is walking one mile, roundtrip, to tour a classroom on campus. If you need a disability-related accommodation or wheelchair access information, please contact Amy Yotopoulos at [email protected]. Requests should be made by March 1, 2017.
