Untreated severe-to-profound hearing loss and the cochlear implant situation: how policy and practice are disabling New Zealand society

October 8, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm NZDT
Lewis Williams

In this webinar, we talk to Cochlear implant user and advocate, Dr Lewis Williams, whose paper ‘Untreated severe-to-profound hearing loss and the cochlear implant situation: how policy and practice are disabling New Zealand society’ was published last year in the New Zealand Medical Journal.

Lewis will be discussing the importance of advocacy in a time when funding for cochlear implants for adults is at crisis levels in New Zealand, and what her own experiences of severe hearing loss have taught her.
