I am really looking forward to the Hearing Loss Association international convention in June. One of the highlights for me will be the research symposium, which takes place on the very last day. This year’s three hour session will focus on quality of life issues such as depression, anxiety, relationships, self-esteem, and loneliness. These important issues which are so important to a person’s life often get overlooked, or not thought about. I am glad we can take a look at them.
