Hearing loss is usually relegated to the Health or Human Interest sections, but here it is - right there on Page 2 of the Business section, alongside a listing of the 200 largest public corporations in New Jersey. And as you can see from the picture and headline, the article is about my advocacy work and hearing loss. The reporter had sent me questions to answer online, in preparation for this article.

Considering that hearing loss impacts business people as much as those who read the Health and Human interest sections, I applaud the Star Ledger for recognizing the serious nature of hearing loss, and its importance to its readers. And applause are also in order for Joel Strasser, HLA-NJ board member, who handles the PR that made this article happen.
The fact that this was also the week that the Yankees made the record books by scoring three grand slam home runs in one game - well, that's pretty amazing, too - almost as amazing as having an article on hearing loss appear in a Business section!
