WANP CE Webinar: Hearing Loss and Preventive Medicine ~ Alexandra deGroot, AuD, F-AAA
April 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT$35 – $65
20% of Americans age 12+ have hearing loss and it is creating an invisible barrier between them and their families, doctors, friends, and coworkers. Further, 40% of those ages 60-69 have hearing loss. There are a lot of dangerous misconceptions about adult-onset hearing loss, primarily that patients will know when it is ‘bad enough to get hearing aids’ and that hearing loss is an unavoidable part of aging. Research has shown leaving it unaddressed leads to decreased brain volume and earning power, as well as dramatically increased risk of fall, dementia, and depression (even when corrected for age). Join us to talk about what hearing loss really means for your patients and how your treatment plan can prevent the hearing loss domino effect.
**This presentation is worth 1 Category 1 CE credit.**
