Congratulations Dr. Al Mehl for receiving September 2014’s #NADHandwave!  Al has been very involved in newborn hearing screening since 1992 and took an integral part in passing Colorado’s newborn hearing legislation in 1997. The reason he’s being recognized this month is because of his recent opinion piece in the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)’s newsletter on how to talk about being deaf, and what makes one “disabled” (or not!).
