The Shadow of Cochlear Implants in Cuba

Remember a post I wrote in September 2015, “My Reflections: Deaf People in Havana” with the link below:

As June 15, 2016, Havana hosted a cochlear symposium as part of the 35th Pan American Congress of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery–please read the links below when you are done reading this post. As 2016, Havana has performed 360 cochlear implant surgeries. The biggest concern is that now America has restored diplomatic relations with Cuba in July 2015–meaning there will be thousands of cochlear implant surgeries happening in Havana sooner than people really think.

I am concerned, folks.
