Description

Amanda Mazzu, Pharm.D. student; and Annette Bourbonniere, Graduate Student, Environmental and Natural Resource Economics. Suppose you had a deaf relative who was given the option to have an operation that might allow him/her to hear again? How would this affect family members and friends who were also deaf? What if the operation had risks? Who should make the final decision? What if the relative were a minor child? Join us for a screening of segments of “Sweet Nothing in my Ear,” (2008) starring Marlee Matlin. Participate in a panel discussion of URI staff and students with strong ties to the deaf community on this controversial topic.
