10 US Presidents with Hearing Loss
When hearing aids were first released to the public, very few people wanted to make their hearing loss known to others. Embarrassed by their condition, those who wore hearing aids often did so in private and only around people they trusted.
While this stigma continues to affect the hundreds of millions of people with hearing loss around the world, the use of hearing aids is now much more acceptable and encourage by professionals and loved ones.
