Join Hearing Health Foundation (HHF) for a free, captioned webinar, Age Related-Hearing Loss: Problems and Solutions, on Monday, October 26, 2020, 5:00 pm.
Presented by Samira Anderson, Au.D., Ph.D., this is the first event in our new Hearing Health Hour webinar series.
Untreated age-related hearing loss leads to many changes throughout the brain and can affect speech understanding and cognitive ability. The presentation will review how hearing loss changes the way our brains respond to speech and how it may affect cognitive functions, such as working memory. The extent to which hearing aid amplification can reverse these changes will also be discussed. Attendees will be able to participate in a Q&A with Anderson at the end of the session.
If you are unable to attend the live event, you can submit a question in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, October 23.
