EDUCATIONAL WEBINARS

You are invited to view the Educational Webinars from the Hearing Health Collaborative.

Good hearing and communication are important to all stages of life. The number of people living with disabling hearing loss continues to grow in the United States especially among the adult population. If left unaddressed or under addressed, hearing loss poses significant challenges to healthy aging.

The Hearing Health Collaborative was formed to understand the underlying barriers and define a plan to overcome challenges to access. Specifically, we explore 1) awareness of the science behind healthy hearing and healthy aging 2) current guidance and policies to support access to the full continuum of treatment solutions and 3) adequacy of care delivery models to support an increasing number of patients.
