    FYI: the YouTube video & slides linked are entitled “Chapters: Attracting and Keeping Younger Adults” and are not (as far as I can tell) about emergency preparedness.

    I believe you have linked to the wrong resource. Both the webinar recording and the PowerPoint slides show a presentation about attracting young adults to the HLAA.

    The links to this webinar recording is NOT for emergency preparedness for People with Hearing Loss but for another webinar on young adults with hearing loss.

    I work with the Puerto Rico Department of Health as a community preparedness and at least focusing on people with disabilities. I’m very interested in learning more more about people with hearing impairments.
