National Deafness Sector Summit

We reluctantly made the decision to defer this year’s Deafness Sector Summit. It was difficult to attract consumer advocates from interstate to create a genuinely national event. Despite the positive media stories, people are still hesitant to make commitments months ahead involving travel, particularly in airplanes.

However, we are pleased to announce that Hearing Australia and Deafness Forum Australia will present the 2022 Libby Harricks Memorial Oration a Cocktail Function in Sydney on 11 October. All the info is here.

“For 75 years, Hearing Australia has been helping Australians experience the joy of sound.

The organisation cares for thousands of children, adults, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, pensioners and veterans every week in our cities, regional centres and the most remote parts of Australia, to help them stay connected with their families and communities.

Hearing Australia works with its clients and hearing care partners to deliver on its promise to offer world leading hearing solutions anyone can access – for the wellbeing of all Australians.

Working side by side with organisations like the Deafness Forum, Hearing Australia is committed to improving the hearing health of our nation, and is proud to support the Deafness Forum Summit by presenting the Summit cocktail function.”
