Hearing Loss Nov Dec 2009 - (Page 4)

FOUNDER Howard E. “Rocky” Stone (1925-2004) In 1979, Rocky Stone founded the organization as Self Help for Hard of Hearing People (SHHH). The thinking behind the self-help philosophy for SHHH was to enhance each of us as human beings. Hearing loss was an important but secondary consideration. Once we accept responsibility for ourselves, we have to learn to love ourselves, and then, each other. —Rocky Stone For advertising information, contact Kyle Harrington at kyle@bluehouse.us George Schindler President, CGI Federal Donna Sorkin Vice President of Consumer Affairs Cochlear Americas Michelle Talluto Global Channels & Advocacy Groups Program Manager IBM Patricia Trautwein Director of Auditory Training & Education Advanced Bionics PROFESSIONAL ADVISORS MEDICAL Paul Hammerschlag, M.D. New York University Medical Center John W.
