Independence Amplified Maryland: Hyperacusis
December 21, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
When most people think about disabilities they don’t think of about a condition called hyperacusis, where people experience physical pain from everyday sounds. Join us to hear from a teenager who has grown up with this rare pain disorder. Learn about the many misconceptions and emerging research on hyperacusis, the impact it has on peoples’ daily lives, and our presenter’s effort to raise awareness and fight for legislative change to help those with hyperacusis and other types of environmental illness, rare disease, and chronic pain conditions.
