Hearing Health, Communication Techniques, and Maintaining Your Best Hearing

June 5, 2019

Hearing is essential. We take it for granted until we have trouble communicating. It is important for a sense of safety, awareness, good healthy cognition, and of course, for socialization and communication.
Three in ten people over the age of 60 have hearing loss, and one in two over the age of 75. We all deal with hearing loss, sometimes our own or the people in our lives.

This NNORC Breakfast Club will provide an explanation of hearing loss—different types and levels. We will cover the consequences of not treating hearing loss and what we can do to maintain good hearing! We will also discuss tips for good communication.

Our presenter is Debra Trees who is an audiologist at St. Peter’s Hospital where she has worked for the past 33 years. As a Doctor of Audiology, she provides hearing health in the form of diagnostic testing and treatment to people of all ages and with all types of hearing issues.

Please join us on Wednesday, September 11 at 9:30 a.m. at the Albany Jewish Community Center (340 Whitehall Road, Albany). Please call NNORC at 518-514-2023 to reserve your bagel and your seat!

There is no NNORC Breakfast Club in October. Please save November 13 for the next NNORC Breakfast Club.

     Save Wednesday, September 11 for the next NNORC Breakfast Club when we welcome Debra Trees, Au.D. from St. Peter’s Hospital, who will discuss “Hearing as We Age and Ways to Protect Our Hearing.”
