Delving Deeper Into Hearing Loss: Workshop & Free Screening
July 12, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Presenters: Shu-En A. Lim, AuD, CCC-A, F-AAA & Kenneth Billheimer, AuD
There’s a lot more to hearing than just the ear. The ear-brain system is responsible for coding and decoding all the sounds in our environment. Learn more about how changes to hearing impacts much more than just not having enough volume. We’ll also discuss new advancements in hearing device technology that aim to help deficits in the ear-brain system, and allow individuals with hearing loss to maximize their ability to function in varied hearing environments.
Do you have difficulty with hearing on the telephone or hearing it ring? Students (under the
supervision of the audiology faculty from the University of the Pacific) will be offering hearing
screenings to determine if you qualify for a telephone from the California Telephone Access
Program. These specialized phones will aid you in hearing a telephone conversation with
more clarity and volume. There is no charge for the screening, and, if you qualify, there is no
charge for the telephone.
