The American Academy of Audiology is encouraging people to remember how important hearing is to your daily life, along with encouraging hearing screenings and hearing protection. This month is dedicated to advance the profession of audiology by promoting awareness of audiology and educating the public about the importance of hearing protection.
Audiologists are the primary healthcare professionals who are licensed to evaluate, diagnose, and treat hearing loss as well as balance disorders. Audiologists have a valuable role in treating the hearing health of all age groups. Hearing loss is the third most common health condition faced by older adults in the United States.
Over 36 million Americans suffer from hearing loss. Untreated hearing loss can lead to depression, anger, frustration, social isolation, and cognitive decline. At Michigan Hearing Experts we encourage you and a loved one to get your hearing checked! Call and make an appointment today!
