Meetings are open to Laguna Woods residents and their guests.

Have you heard of Ototoxic Drugs? 

Are you aware that these drugs can cause hearing loss? 

Join us for the next meeting when Joni Doherty, M.D., Ph.D. of the Keck School of Medicine of USC presents a discussion of these drugs and their possible side effects on hearing loss and balance problems.  The presentation will provide a comprehensive introduction of current studies on how certain drugs adversely affect the sensory (hair) cells, and thus potentially cause hearing loss and balance functions.  Symptoms that may indicate Ototoxicity will be discussed.


Dr. Joni Doherty, MD, PhD

Classes of drugs and how they affect the inner ear will be included.  An overview of pre-treatment that could prevent Ototoxic damage to the ear will be provided.  Finally, there will be a discussion of potential treatments.  This is a guest speaker program you will not want to miss.
