CHAMP Camp

Jun 19, 2015 - Jun 20, 2015 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Lexington Catholic High School
Character. Heart. Attitude. Motivation. Pride. These are the characteristics C.H.A.M.P. Camp strives to instill in
our campers. These two-day football camps are about much more than football. By focusing on on-field training,
our team is also able to impart invaluable lessons for life both on and off the field.

In our experience, many campers who stand to gain the most from C.H.A.M.P. Camp activities are unable to
afford a registration fee; therefore, we have made our camp completely free for all campers. We rely entirely on
the generous support of our sponsors to make C.H.A.M.P. Camp possible. Our staff and coaches are unpaid and
devote their time strictly toward investing in our area students.

HEARING LOSS ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA LEXINGTON MEETING

Nov 13, 2014 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Lexington Hearing & Speech Center, 350 Henry Clay Boulevard, Lexington, Kentucky 40502-1024
John Perry will present on Financing Options for Hearing Aids and other things an informed consumer needs to know. He will review current hearing aid technology, one feature is certain, be sure to ask the hearing professional to include a telecoil in your hearing aid. Also a review on the channels through which hearing aids are distributed, what you need to know as an informed consumer. Finally and very important, he will explore the options available to us to help finance this expense.
John was the 2009-2011 president of Hearing Loss Association of America Kentuckiana Chapter and is currently their treasurer. He first found out about his hearing loss at age 23 when he enlisted in the Kentucky Air National Guard. He would say that most of his hearing loss was caused by rock 'n roll, fireworks, cap pistols, model airplane engines and woodworking machinery. His hearing, along with his eyesight, was recorded as a “2” in his official physical profile. Fortunately, his having a “2” for his hearing profile did not keep him from his chosen field of weather. Jump forward twenty years plus and John’s hearing was getting so bad that he had to do something. He found the national Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) when it was still named Self Help for the Hard of Hearing (SHHH) and subscribed to the journal. It took him another two years before he was ready to go and see first a dispenser, second another dispenser and finally an audiologist. He bought his hearing aids from the audiologist. His only regret is that he had not accepted his hearing loss sooner and had done something about it. He continued to struggle with the challenges of his hearing loss. Though things have gotten better, John says he is still a work in progress.
The meeting is realtime captioned by Sworn Testimony, PLLC and is free and open to the public.
HLAA provides information about various technologies, services, products or organizations to our members for their examination. Inclusion of any technology, service, product or organization does not mean HLAA endorsement
nor does exclusion of these mean disapproval.
