The Young Hearing Group (YHG) met for the first time on the night of December 15, 2010 at Café Palm in Downtown Sarasota drawing ten people in search of support for their hearing loss. The Rap Session focused on how the new support group could be structured to best cater to each individual’s needs. The consensus was to bring in expert speakers, share information and experiences, plus identify health care resources where needed, that could lead to better ways of dealing with one’s loss. Since then, each meeting includes time to network, an expert speaker and a rap session to address specific needs.
