Last year, Longwood University’s Speech, Hearing, and Learning Services (SHLS) introduced the Southside Hearing Loss Support Group for individuals living with hearing loss and their families.

The meetings are led by graduate students from the Longwood University Communication Science and Disorders graduate program, with the support of Dr. Mani Aguilar, the SHLS audiologist, and Dr. Lissa Power-deFur, the SHLS Program Director. At each meeting, the students and doctors present a topic chosen by the meeting participants.

In previous meetings, the topics have included “Strategies to Improve Communication with a Person Who Has Hearing Loss,” “What to Expect from Your Hearing Aids,” and “New Hearing Aid Technologies and Solutions.” Participants are also offered hearing aid checks prior to the meeting.

Meetings will be held on the fourth Friday of each month from January to April.

Meetings are free to attend and are held at 315 West Third Street in Farmville from 12:30-2:00 p.m. For more information, visit or call 434-395-2972.
