The Illinois Cochlear Implant Chapter is a not for profit chapter of the national Hearing Loss
Association of America (HLAA)
We are a support group that offers individuals who face a common challenge the opportunity to
seek out emotional support and practical help in dealing with a major life change. We provide an
atmosphere of caring, sharing and support in times of need, most importantly during the implant
decision process. We do this by having meetings on Cochlear Implant related topics six times a
year, by publishing a newsletter for members and maintaining this web-site. The chapter is run by
and for its members.
Thanks for visiting.
Chicago's Walk4Hearing is quickly approaching and will take place on Sunday, September 27 along
the lakefront on Cannon Drive just north of Lincoln Park Zoo.
Donations to the ICIC Walk Team 2015 support our member programs and help us to spread
awareness and education about cochlear implants throughout the Chicagoland area. Please help by
asking your friends and family to visit www.Walk4Hearing.org and make a donation on the Chicago
walk page to any member of our ICIC Walk Team 2015. Better yet, join as a team member yourself
and show your support in person!
