Old name, new purpose: why we’ve gone back to RNID

2023 Hearing Therapeutics Summit

Talk: Hugh Strickland

Hugh Strickland, Aaron & Partners Solicitors

I have hereditary deafness – from my father, and his mother – several cousins have it, as does one of my children. What does it mean to be deaf, how do we cope in the modern world – and what can you do to help us?
