Hearing loss is very complicated and requires a complete explanation, so Rotarians can tell their families – especially the younger people - why it is so important to save their ears.

Monique Hammond is a registered pharmacist who lost hearing in her left ear – from a loud folk rock band - at a church fundraiser over 10 years ago.

The incident became a life-changer – she had to quit her job at the University of Minnesota Hospital Pharmacy.

Monique had graduated with high distinction from the University of Minnesota, College of Pharmacy.

After losing hearing, she did 5 years of research and wrote the book: What Did You Say? An Unexpected Journey into the World of Hearing Loss (1st and 2nd Editions).

Monique was appointed by the governor to the Commission of Deaf, Deafblind and Hard-Of-Hearing Minnesotans, where she completed two terms as vice-chair. She is also past president of the Minnesota Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America. Monique speaks regularly to employees and the members of the public about Hearing Loss and the dangers of loud noise.

Monique is a former Rotarian and has spoken - in person and via Zoom to over 200 Rotary Clubs across the US, Canada and other countries.
