This week, Phonak audiologists got social, participating in a live Twitter chat called “HearingLossHour.” Phonak audiologists Ora Buerkli and Anna Biggins joined the discussion on Wednesday, answering questions about hearing technology, giving advice on what topics to discuss with audiologists, and helping people connect with others in the hearing loss community.
Here’s the full chat transcript:

Hearing Like Me blogger, Angie Aspinall organizes the monthly chat and you can learn more about it here.
Meanwhile, the cutest thing on social media this week was probably this video of this dog in a wheelchair pulling his blind and deaf friend around. It just proves “best friends make the good times better and the hard times easier.”
