As of October 2022, hearing aids are available to purchase without a prescription anywhere health devices are sold. Designed to treat mild to moderate hearing loss in adults, this new affordable option addresses two significant barriers: delaying care due to cost and perceptions that assistive devices are not helpful in treating hearing loss.<br /><br /><br />Dr. Carrie Nieman, associate professor in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and co-founder of Access HEARS, is a clinician, researcher, and social entrepreneur committed to providing innovative solutions to address disparities in hearing care. During this session Dr. Nieman will discuss the pros and cons of the options available, the science behind the devices, and how to assess whether over-the-counter assistive devices are right for you. <br /><br />Registration Link: https://jhjhm.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJEofuiqqTssHtaZjpRO5EYn4T_emjnXW_Pu<br /><br />This special presentation is organized by FHNN, with special thanks to Suburban Hospital, a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, and is free and open to everyone. <br /><br />This program is part of FHNN&#39;s collaboration with Little Falls Village. <br /><br />Speaker’s Bio: https://jhucochlearcenter.org/carrie-nieman.html
