2017 Focus On People awards 

 

Changing Attitudes, Opening Doors

The Oticon Focus on People Awards recognize outstanding people with hearing loss who are helping to show that hearing loss does not limit a person’s ability to make a positive difference in their families, communities or the world.

Since 1997, this national awards competition has honored more than 255 outstanding people with hearing loss. 

Our goal is to recognize people who prove that hearing loss does not limit a person’s ability to live a full, productive and inspiring life. 


Winners in each of the four categories receive prizes and national recognition that helps to create awareness, change attitudes and open doors of opportunity for all people with hearing loss.

Do you know a person with hearing loss or a hearing care professional who goes “above and beyond” to change outdated stereotypes of what it means to have a hearing loss?

Nominate them for the 2017 Oticon Focus on People Awards!
