The Hearing Center seeks nominees from Juneau for national awards program
Ken Klepinger of The Hearing Center is seeking people from Juneau with any degree of hearing loss for a national awards program that honors people with hearing loss who make a difference in their schools, communities, or the world.
The 2011 Oticon Focus on People Awards, now in its 14th year, is designed to help eliminate outdated and hurtful stereotypes that discourage people from seeking professional help for their hearing loss.
Klepinger encourages anyone who knows of an outstanding person with hearing loss to contact him at The Hearing Center, 789-2359 or via his website at www.hearalaska.com.
There are three categories for the award: full-time students ages 6-21, adults over age 21 and practitioners, which awards professionals in general practice, school, and clinical settings.
The deadline for nominations is July 27.
