HonorHealth presents a free hearing screening 3-6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15 at the Cowden Center on the John C. Lincoln Medical Center campus, 9202 N. 2nd St., Room 1.
Hearing loss is the third-most common health problem in the country, affecting more than 36 million Americans. More than half of individuals with hearing loss are below the age of 65. A third of the population aged 65 and older has some amount of hearing loss.
Common signs of hearing loss include asking for repetition, complaining that people are not speaking clearly, having increased difficulty understanding speech in background noise, increasing the volume of the television beyond what is considered normal, and struggling to communicate on the telephone.
An audiologist is the primary healthcare professional who evaluates, diagnoses and treats hearing loss. Two HonorHealth audiologists, Dr. Andrew Couch and Dr. Kristin Wells, will be conducting hearing screens to help provide individuals with information about their hearing health.
Space is limited. RSVP to 623-580-5800 or online at http://HonorHealth.com/events (keyword search: Cowden).
