Hearing Well Club Monthly Meeting
Tuesday, October 13, 2020, 2:00 pm Surviving and THRIVING during the extended Pandemic
What we thought was going to be a few weeks of isolation, has become a 6 month hibernation, and possibly something we will continue to deal with for months to come. Wearing masks has become a HUGE barrier to communication- especially for those of us with hearing loss and who need lip reading to survive. Join us on Tuesday, October 13th at 2 pm, as audiologists Ann Mundell-Noel, and Dr. Laura Hunt of Amazing Hearing give us some much needed tips for thriving. We will discuss strategies and ways to improve communication- with or without a mask.
