Monique Hammond is a registered pharmacist who lost hearing in her left ear – from a loud band - at a church fundraiser 10 years ago. The incident became a life-changer – she had to quit her job at the University 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 (now in the 2nd Edition).
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 Twin Cities’ 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. Website and blog:
