COVID-19 Survey

The International Disability Alliance has launched a global survey about the experiences of persons with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.  It is important for our community to participate in the survey since results can be disaggregated by disability category and, thus, inform our Hearing Health Care Access and Communication project.  To complete the survey please go to www.internationaldisabilityalliance.org/covid19-survey.  Please complete by the deadline of Feb. 7, 2021.
