Grand Piano Passion: You Don’t Look Like You Have a Hearing Loss

Janice Schacter Lintz, the Ralph Nader of the hearing world, has been on a mission over the past decade to install hearing loops in public places for people of all ages who suffer from hearing loss. Thanks in part to her work, the American Museum of Natural History, the New York Botanical Garden, and the New York subway information booths, among many other places, are now equipped with hearing loops. After meeting Janice, I made sure that the new Phonak hearing aids I recently purchased not only had a music setting for playing classical piano music, but also a T-coil, which is a miniature antenna inside my aid that picks up sounds from hearing loops. I recently caught up with Janice for GRAND PIANO PASSION™.
