HLAA national honors Loop Washington

At the 2016 HLAA national conference this June, I was honored to accept the Get in the Hearing Loop award on behalf of Let’s Loop Seattle, HLA-WA, and the many advocates, both high-profile and under-the-radar, who are making Washington the most hearing-friendly state in the country.
