The first half of the meeting will be a peer support group and then Judy will share how you can have better phone conversations with your loved ones by utilizing captioning on a telephone and iPad. How does captioning work? Why are the phones free? Who qualifies to receive one? Get answers to these questions and more!

Ann Miller joined ALOHA as a volunteer in December and is a prospective audiology student for the fall. A Chicago native, she moved to Tucson with hopes of attending the University of Arizona. After years working in law and politics, she decided to change careers and discovered by very happy accident that audiology would be a great fit for her skills and interests. Ann has a BA in Political Science and a Post-Baccalaureate certificate focusing on speech and hearing sciences from Northwestern University. She volunteered at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago helping the physical and occupational therapists and speech language pathologists with patient care. Ann said she “discovered ALOHA and thought it was a unique and worthwhile organization to volunteer for”. In her spare time she loves to hike, go to museums, read, and bicycle around town. Ann greets everyone with a smile and has been a wonderful addition to the team! Welcome Ann!!
