About this Seminar

Hearing loss affects 18% of the world’s population, and is the fourth leading cause of disability worldwide. In the United States, hearing loss crosses all age groups and demographics, but the significant impact in older adults is just beginning to be recognized. Recent advances hold promise for prevention and treatment of hearing loss, as well as in facilitating accessibility to hearing care for improved quality of life.
