Hearing loss affects nearly two-thirds of adults 70 years and older in the United States. Once thought to be a benign part of the aging process, research within the last decade has demonstrated that age-related hearing loss is strongly and independently associated with various negative outcomes like increased risk of social isolation, depression, and accelerated cognitive decline. Join us for this webinar to learn how to age well with hearing loss and get access to the hearing healthcare services you or your loved ones need in Baltimore City!
Join us for speakers from Hearing & Speech-Language Services (HASA), MD Technology Assistance Program (MDTAP), and the Maryland Accessible Telecommunications (MAT) program!
Captioning and ASL Interpretation will be available!

Independence Amplified Maryland, a program of the Maryland Centers for Independent Living, is your opportunity to know what’s going on in the world of disability and take control of your future.

The Centers for Independent Living in Maryland collaborate on this weekly live stream. The stream, which can be watched live via Zoom or viewed later on YouTube, features speakers on the current issues that most interest the disability community, families, and service providers.

You’ll hear from disability leaders, public officials, and most importantly—you, our community, and listeners. The show educates the public about the capacities of people with disabilities through the message of I AM:

I AM independent. I AM safe. I AM prepared. I AM in charge.
