Planes, Trains & Automobiles: Travel Tips for People with Hearing Loss
2011-12-20 · By Editor
Are you among those who are frustrated to hear information during travels? Chapter member Dr. Bill Busch, will be guest speaker speaking on a presentation from the National HLAA Conference held in Washington, D.C. in June 2011 on “Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Travel Tips for People with Hearing Loss.” Planes, trains and automobiles are noisy and Dr. Busch will offer tips to help people to hear to make their travels more enjoyable.
By way of education, Bill received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from USC. He has had Menier’s disease for 40 years. With its onset, he announced ruefully that he could communicate with astronauts in outer space, but had great difficulty talking to his wife over the breakfast table. Dr. Busch had surgery in October to implant a cochlear implant device so that he might hear again.
The Dr. Bill Busch presentation “Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Travel Tips for People with Hearing Loss” is Thursday, January 12, 2012 starting at 6:30 p.m.
No reservations are necessary and admission is free. For more information, please call 562-438-0597 or visit www.hlalongbeachlakewood.org. Light refreshments are served.
Hearing Loss Association, Long Beach/Lakewood Chapter is a support group offering education on coping skills and resources to help survive in a hearing world. HLA meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month at the Weingart Senior Center, 5220 Oliva Avenue, Lakewood, CA.
