Max Stanley Chartrand, PhD, CSP (Behavioral Medicine)
Casa Grande, AZ
Dr. Chartrand’s profound hearing loss doesn't prevent him from leading a profoundly inspiring life. His mission: to provide hope and encouragement for people with hearing loss and other challenges to find their way and arrive with flying colors. He is his own best example.
Severely hearing impaired before age 3, he earned 6 advanced university degrees – without the ability to hear the lectures – graduating at or near the top of his class. A renowned researcher, professor, author and award-winning keynote speaker, Dr. Chartrand is also an accomplished musician who thrills his audiences with a concert at many of his speaking engagements — while advocating the power of the human spirit to overcome any physical or cognitive barrier to make the world a better place for all.
