Cochlear Family News

Summer 2017 issue

Welcome to your Summer 2017 issue of Cochlear Family News!

In this issue, we take you around the world with Cochlear Family members. Find out what German student Michelle Mohring learned during four months in the USA. Look forward to the 3rd international Beats of Cochlea music festival in Poland. And learn how Elaine Mukaaya focused the attention of the World Health Organisation on the difficulties of getting a cochlear implant in Uganda.

In addition, we have tips and tricks for getting social with Kanso and for getting your sound processor wet … and keeping it dry!

Happy reading!
