At the CHHA National conference on May 25th, in Edmonton, CHHA Vancouver Branch was presented with the CHHA Bette Moulton Award, which recognizes a Branch for being a strong voice for the hard of hearing.
The nomination read, in part that “CHHA Vancouver is a thriving, active branch at a time when many branches are in decline. With committed individuals and a program of interesting activities CHHAVAN is one of the healthiest branches in the country.
This year CHHA Vancouver will hold its third annual WALK2HEAR Walkathon (in cooperation with the BC CHAPTER). CHHA Vancouver was a major sponsor of the Youth Leadership Retreat in Edmonton, at the national conference, using walkathon funds to contribute to their budget, and grant funds to subsidize nine B.C. youth to attend.
A major thank you to all of the enthusiastic and committed individuals who support and participate in the work of CHHAVAN, for people with hearing loss. You make it happen.
