2014 marks the 100-year anniversary of CID - Central Institute for the Deaf in St. Louis. To help commemorate this momentous occasion, CID will host a special guest speaker for a Centennial lecture and reception at EPNEC at Washington University Medical Center on Thursday, July 17, at 7pm. This lecture is free and open to the public. It is a featured program of STL250, celebrating the 250th birthday of St. Louis.
Research on hearing loss has concentrated on regaining access to sound for the purpose of communication, but language is not the only way hearing affects our lives. Dr. Charles Limb’s CID Centennial talk focuses on one particular area of sound that is often overlooked: music. For individuals who can hear, music is a basic part of life. For people who are deaf and hard of hearing, enjoying music can be difficult because hearing technology is not yet sufficiently advanced to restore the full range of sound.
We hope you will join us for this special event and help congratulate CID for 100 years of service to children who are deaf and hard of hearing and the professionals who help them listen, talk, read and succeed.
