Bethesda, Md — The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) has announced the launch of a redesigned website that is more user-friendly and showcases a modern web design.

The new website is a major upgrade from the site’s last version. HLAA said its goal was to make the site more intuitive, to provide better navigation, and to make it easier to find specific content from the organization’s vast online collection of hearing loss resources.

HLAA’s executive director, Brenda Battat, commented in the press statement, “We’ve made the website easier to use and packed with helpful information, so that we can reach even more people looking for hearing health care resources and support for hearing loss.”

She added that the year-long project was generously supported by Cochlear Americas, and she praised the company for its help to make the new website a reality.

Exploring the website, one can find extensive information on the latest in hearing assistive technology, HLAA’s national advocacy work on Capitol Hill, as well as its proposals to federal regulatory agencies.

The site also includes information on HLAA’s many national programs, including the annual HLAA Convention, the National Walk4Hearing, Hearing Loss Support Specialists Training, online webinars, and online communities for young adults and parents.

In addition, there is a section for contact information for professional members, including otolaryngologists, audiologists, and hearing instrument specialists. The data not only is a directory for members, but also can be searched by visitors looking for a hearing health professional in their area.

Finally, the site provides a directory of HLAA’s national network of chapters and state organizations, as well as ways to support HLAA’s work.
