October is Audiology Month. Recently I spoke with Michelle Niehaus, program administrator with the Kentucky Division for Behavioral Health and one of only nine state coordinators in the U.S. focused on mental health and substance use services for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing.
From an early age, Niehaus has honed her skills, advanced her education and pursued career opportunities driven by her passion and advocacy for the deaf and hard of hearing community.
In this podcast, Niehaus shares ideas about how CHFS can address disparities and improve health outcomes for the deaf and hard of hearing.
I hope you enjoy getting to know Michelle Niehaus and learning more about blessings and challenges faced by those with hearing loss in Kentucky. ~ Sec. Eric Friedlander
