Your Aging Ear:
What You Need to Know About Hearing and Hearing Loss

Ann Clock Eddins, PhD, MBA
David A. Eddins, PhD

Date / Time Tuesday, November 20, 2012 - 1:30 PM

Hearing loss is the 3rd most common chronic health condition in older adults, affecting about two-thirds of those 70 years of age and older. Despite the availability of successful options for treating hearing loss, less than 20% of those who could benefit from treatment actually seek it. Additionally, recent studies suggest that untreated hearing loss may be linked to accelerated declines in cognitive function.

Dr. Ann Eddins and Dr. David Eddins, Associate Professors in the department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, and at the Global Center for Hearing and Speech Research at the University of South Florida, will discuss how hearing changes with age and the current technology and approaches that are used to treat hearing loss.
