Workshops on Wellness

Waunakee Village Center
333 South Madison Street
May 11, 2016
7:00 - 8:00 PM

As we age, the prospect of some difficulty hearing and understanding speech becomes very real. There are many causes of hearing loss, but the long term exposure to noise and aging stand out as two of the most common. Ted Tweed will discuss the way we hear, how the ear works, what can go wrong and what you can do about it, including a discussion of hearing aid candidacy and types of hearing aids. Why hearing loss contributes to some very funny communication situations will be apparent. He will answer the questions: "Why do I have trouble understanding you when I can still hear you?"

Hearing screenings will be available beginning at 5:30 PM and will be carried out by graduate students from the UW Madison Student Academy of Audiology. You can call the Village Center to schedule an appointment at 850-5992.
