Introducing our HJ Forum Moderators!

Hello HJ Community! You may have noticed that our HJ Moderators have become more active on the online community, so we wanted to introduce them and make sure you know who they are and how they can help you!

HJ Forum Moderators are AB Community mentors who support the HJ online community on a regular basis. They welcome and assist new members, share experiences, encourage discussion about life with cochlear implants, ensure that members are following community guidelines, and alert AB to sensitive and urgent issues.

If you have questions about the online community or need support, don't hesitate to reach out to our moderators by sending a private message to Michael or CIBlue (click on their username and then hit "Message"). You may also email [email protected] to connect with our team of Outreach Specialists.
