Med-El “OPEN HOUSE”…. Starting February 1st…. 2 locations….

Med-El open houses will be an opportunity for MED-EL users or people who are considering a cochlear implant to come in and learn more about their devices, including how to troubleshoot, change cables and microphone covers, do listening checks, order replacement parts, and learn more about rehabilitation materials.  We will have a Spanish interpreter present – I’d love for this to be a way for Spanish speaking families to become empowered to really understand and use their MED-EL devices.
