Volunteers Needed

Dear Prospective HLA-FL State Association Board Volunteer,

There are 48 million Americans who have significant hearing loss. It is the third most prevalent health issue in older adults behind arthritis and heart disease. Hearing loss is invisible and many with hearing loss do not seek help in a timely manner.

Are you concerned about those who cannot hear?

We are a dynamic group of board members committed to MAKING HEARING LOSS VISIBLE throughout Florida.

Would you like to help us make a difference?

We meet quarterly for approximately six hours and support educational venues and social gatherings statewide. This is your opportunity to join our team and donate your time, energy, experience and expertise to help make a difference. Together we will raise awareness in communities, educate and support others on their hearing loss journey, and MAKE HEARING LOSS VISIBLE!

Please contact us today at [email protected] to learn more or submit an application online using the form below.

Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you.
