Supporters of the Hearing Aid Tax Credit recently visited Rep Ron Kind (D-Wis) in his Washington office to thank him for his support of hearing health issues and to present a plaque to commemorate his visit to an August 2009 HLAA/AG Bell/IHS/HIA luncheon in his district. 

The event, held in La Crosse, Wis, attracted 120 people with hearing loss and parents of children with hearing loss. It was the latest in a series of HIA-sponsored brunch events held across the country in support of the Hearing Aid Tax Credit.
