Michigan Alliance of Hearing Care Professionals donates $5,000 to Advocacy Alliance Chicago, IL

During the last couple of years, the International Hearing Society's Advocacy Alliance has done amazing work on behalf of veterans and providers alike! SEE "FIT TO SERVE PASSES THE HOUSE!" below. This was made possible by the work of the IHS Advocacy Alliance! MAHCP donated $5,000 to the Alliance at the 65th Annual IHS Convention & Expo in Chicago, IL held September 2016. If you would like to make an individual donation to the Advocacy Alliance, click HERE. 


Michigan Members at 2016 IHS Convention in Chicago

The International Hearing Society Annual Convention was held in Chicago, IL on September 7-10, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown.

Pictured left to right: Dr. David Rich, PhD; Scott Lau, ACA, BC-HIS; Linda Sage, Vice President MAHCP; Laura Szot, ACA, BC-HIS; Susan Waite, BC-HIS, IHS Territory Governor; Aaron Toth, ACA, BC-HIS; Kevin Barnes, ACA.

Today, Sept. 14, 2016, the U.S. House of Representatives considered H.R. 5620, the VA Accountability First and Appeals Modernization Act of 2016, an omnibus bill that incorporates a series of reforms aimed at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). As part of the bill's consideration, Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) introduced an amendment to the bill that contains our hearing healthcare language that was passed just two days ago in H.R. 3471. The amendment was adopted, and H.R. 5620 passed the House 310-116. NOW ONTO THE SENATE!!! IHS Still Needs your support!
