Prepare for May Better Hearing and Speech Month

April 14, 2016

Did you know that individuals with healthy hearing are less likely to develop or experience heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, depression and social isolation? Hearing plays a significant role in affecting a person’s mood, overall well-being and everyday life. It is arguably one of the body’s most important senses!

Approximately 48 million Americans have hearing loss, and this staggering number is quickly increasing. In the world, it is estimated that around 360 million men, women and children are affected, and unfortunately, hearing loss is permanent.

So, what will you do next month to help bring attention to the important issue of hearing health? Education and awareness are critical in helping to prevent and treat hearing loss! If you are in need of some ideas, here are a few things that we have planned. Check it out!
