Reuse CoP 

Wednesday August 14 at 3:00 EST
Topic: A Successful Model for Hearing Aid Reuse
Webinar access link: https://amacusg.adobeconnect.com/at3hearaids/ 
Presenters: 
* Carolyn Phillips, Director, Tools for Life and the National Pass It On Center
* Jimmy Brown, Program Coordinator, KATS Network, Statewide Hearing Aid Assistance and Reuse Program (SHARP), Kentucky Assistive Technology Service (KATS) Network

Access to hearing aids is severely limited by affordability. Aging populations and the absence of insurance coverage are just two factors that make the reuse of hearing aids a high-impact opportunity to expand into a new facet of reuse. Join us for a webinar discussing the ins and outs and feasibility of hearing aid reuse. Jimmy Brown from Kentucky’s AT Act program will describe how they partnered to create a successful, replicable model.
