A topic I'd like to cover:

I'd like to learn more about the medical treatments that exist to treat deafness, and especially the feeling of the deaf community towards them. I know cochlear implants for children are very contrversial, and I'm wondering if we could talk more about that, and if there are any other treatments that cause conflict between the medical world and the deaf community. Also, I just had a question about how many people working in the medical sphere are actually deaf? Are they consulted about these treatments?
