  • Support Jacob's Ride on June 16-17

    Jacob Landis received a cochlear implant at the age of ten. He has devoted much to helping those with hearing loss. Three years ago, Jacob decided to combine his passion for baseball, cycling, and helping the hearing impaired by riding to all thirty U.S. Major League baseball stadiums to raise money for the Gift of Hearing. This money is used to offset the cost of an implant for those who cannot afford the procedure. Contact Amy at Amy at amynejezchleb@yahoo.com or Marc Brennan at Marc.Brennan@boystown.org for more information.

  • Join Us for the April 25th Region IV Social Event

    Please join us for the NSLHA Region IV Friday Afternoon Club on April 24th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Cunninghams Journal. The address is 15 West 23rd Street, Kearney, NE 68847. If weather permits we will meet in the courtyard. Otherwise, I will have tables inside. Please bring your SLP and AUD friends, NSLHA members or not. This is a great opportunity to meet other NSLHA members and to take some time to unwind at the end of the week. Cunningham's has great drinks and a full menu, so feel free to drop in for just a drink or to stay and eat something too. You will be responsible for your own check. Please let me know if you have questions, and I hope to see you all there!
