HLAA se enorgullece en presentar nuestro primer seminario virtual en español, con el cual buscamos apoyar a las personas con pérdida auditiva en la comunidad latina.

Las pérdidas auditivas son más comunes de lo que pensamos. De hecho, representan el tercer problema de salud más común en los Estados Unidos. Aquellas personas que tienen diabetes, problemas cardiovasculares, o historia de exposición a ruido están en riesgo de tener una pérdida auditiva. La diabetes y los problemas cardiovasculares son comunes en la población latina, por lo tanto, debemos estar bien informados sobre como detectar una pérdida de audición y que hacer al respecto. Le invitamos a una sesión informativa donde explicaremos que exámenes se deben hacer para la detección, así como también que soluciones existen hoy en día para ayudar a las personas que sufren de pérdidas auditivas.

Esta sesión será en español, y al final tendremos la oportunidad de tomar preguntas. Le esperamos!

Por favor revise su zona horaria para este seminario web: 4 p.m. ET, 3 p.m. CT, 2 p.m, MT, 1 p.m. PT. Este es un seminario web gratuito y con subtítulos.

Is your hearing declining? How to detect a hearing loss and what to do about it

Date: October 28, 2020

Time: 4 p.m. ET, 3 p.m. CT, 2 p.m. MT, 1 p.m. PT

 

Presenter:

Alejandra Ullauri, Au.D., M.P.H.
Director, Chicago Hearing Care

 

HLAA is proud to present its first webinar in Spanish aimed at supporting people with hearing loss in the Latino community.

Hearing loss is more common than what most of us think. It is the third most common health problem in the U.S. People who have diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and history of noise exposure are at risk of acquiring a hearing loss. Diabetes and cardiovascular disease are common health problems in the Latino population, therefore we must stay informed about ways to detect a hearing loss, and what we can do about it. Please join us in this informative session and learn about what types of hearing tests are available, as well as what types of hearing solutions we have.

This session will be in Spanish only, and we will have a Q&A section at the end.

Please check your time zone for this webinar: 4 p.m. ET, 3 p.m. CT, 2 p.m. MT, 1 p.m. PT. This webinar is free and open captioned.
