“Social Engagement” - a buzz word that seems to have been around a long time. Hearing loss solutions have always been about engagement, right? The 2020 pandemic has shined a bright light on the impact other approaches to engagement can make in the lives of seniors with hearing loss. Jack York from It’s Never Too Late (iN2L) will talk with us about a specific approach to engagement using technology and explain how social engagement can change things for the better - much like the first time someone gets hearing aids.
