We have ended another good year of providing educational information and presentations to our HoH community and other interested members of Las Cruces. It is time for us to come together to discuss what we've done and what we would like to do to continue providing important information about hearing loss to Las Cruces and surrounding areas. We ask you to take an interest in joining us to help plan, brainstorm, engage, and lead. We will meet at Mike and Karen Lieberman's home located at 4401 East Winchester Rd., Las Cruces, NM 88011. You can call 575-644-0445 for directions.
If I had a hearing loss, my family doctor would have told me.
Not true! Only 14% of physicians routinely screen for hearing loss during a physical. Since most people with hearing impairments hear well in a quiet environment like a doctor's office, it can be virtually impossible for your physician to recognize the extent of your problem. Without special training, and an understanding of the nature of hearing loss, it may be difficult for your doctor to even realize that you have a hearing problem.

Many thanks to Ariana Lazo for a very professional and engaging presentation on cochlear implants. Ms. Lazo walked us through the importance of recognizing different kinds of hearing loss, it's impact in our daily lives, and how cochlear implants can help with clarity when hearing aids aren't enough. We have information from Cochlear Americas if you'd like to explore their products and services.
