Thanks for the info., Victor
Just wanted to note that this event appears to be about CIs (Cochlear Implants). CIs are generally for those who are bilaterally (completely) deaf. Most people on the Forum who have lost their hearing due an Acoustic Neuroma are unilaterally or single-sided deaf (SSD) which means that a CI would not be appropriate for them.
However, the sponsor of this event (Cochlear Americas) has something for those of us who are SSD called a BAHA (bone-anchored hearing aid). I've had a BAHA for 2 1/2 years now and absolutely love it!
Cochlear has events for both BAHA and CI candidates all the time - in just about every major city in the U.S. Those who attend them will find them very informative and a great resource for hearing loss. Check out www.cochlearamericas.com
