CHARLOTTETOWN – Shannon Micallef from Charlottetown, the first person in North America to receive active bone conduction surgery, will share her story at the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association P.E.I. Chapter meeting at the North Tryon Presbyterian Church CE Centre in North Tryon on Tuesday, June 3, at 9:30 a.m.

After 34 years of relying on conventional hearing aids, she is now able to hear clearly for the first time in her life. Dr. David Morris of the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre in Halifax learned of the procedure during a surgical course in Berlin.

Everyone is invited to attend and learn more about her experience to find a way to be able to communicate effectively. There will be a short business meeting and a tea break.
