Hearing Aids

Audiology Awareness Month

Did you know that hearing loss affects one in ten North Americans each year? Every October is recognized as Audiology Awareness Month. The purpose is to increase awareness of audiology and to educate the public on the importance of healthy hearing and the professionals who dedicate their lives to helping others hear again.

What is Audiology?

Audiology is known as the science and study of hearing. Audiologists are experts who help to prevent, diagnose and treat hearing and balance disorders. Through treatment with an audiologist, patients can not only improve their hearing, but improve their quality of life.
