Paige Stringer, founder and executive director of the Global Foundation For Children With Hearing Loss, will discuss “Connecting Children with Hearing Technology” at the Rotary Club of Mercer Island’s March 2 meeting.

The main meeting will begin at 12:45 p.m. and can be accessed at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/4096976967. All are welcome.

Born with a profound hearing loss, Stringer benefited from early identification and early intervention services as a baby to learn to listen and talk. In 2009, she established the Global Foundation For Children With Hearing Loss to help young children who are deaf or hard of hearing and living in low and middle-income countries have similar opportunities for success in life that she was fortunate to have. The foundation has worked in Vietnam since 2010 and expanded to Mongolia in 2016.
