There are movers and there are shakers. And then there is Janice Schacter. Schacter, 44, brings an astonishing history of successful hearing health advocacy to her new role as executive director of the Deafness Research Foundation (DRF). As the mother of a 12-year-old daughter who has hearing loss, Schacter’s initial involvement with hearing health advocacy was directly related to ensuring that her daughter had complete access to school field trips and entertainment venues. Her “can-do” attitude and tireless lobbying of museums, theaters, places of worship and other venues in New York City has resulted in hearing-accessible technology in these same venues that will benefit a wide audience of people with hearing loss.
