10:30A-11:30A "The Brain-Ear Connection: Understanding Cognition's role in Better Hearing"
Emerging research has shown correlation between untreated hearing loss & cognitive decline. This seminar will explore the interaction between the brain and the auditory system, focusing on how the aging brain processes sound. We will examine steps for improving our hearing, our cognitive health, and, in turn, our quality of life.
12:30P-1:00P "It Takes Two: Strategies for Improving Communication"
When a friend or loved one has a hearing loss, many find that daily communication becomes a struggle. This interactive workshop will provide communication partners vital tips and strategies for reducing frustration and improving dialogue. Even simple behavioral and verbal changes can make a world of difference in hearing better and being understood.
