Hearing Loss-The Silent Epidemic
Hearing Loss-The Silent Epidemic

Monique Hammond was a pharmacist at a major hospital when she lost her hearing in one ear due to loud noise at a church fund-raiser.  Unable to hear sufficiently well to perform her job duties, she quit her job and now has a “new mission in life - helping others to avoid hearing loss.” 

Monique describes hearing loss as a “silent epidemic” and “invisible” disability” that impacts about 1/5 of Americans.  Hearing loss is significant because it impacts us socially, emotionally, professionally and financially. Hearing loss creates a sense of isolation, which can trigger depression and possibly dementia.  Join us! to learn more.

Presentation: Drones - What can they really do?

With all of the hype about the emerging drone industry, I'll share what are drones actually doing now and what can we expect in the future.  Amazing things are happening everyday as individuals and companies discover the utility of drones in daily tasks.  Farmers are monitoring plant health to increase yields, wind turbine blades are inspected for damage, utility companies are using drones for storm damage assessment, and the list goes on.  The future holds even more promise and eventually we may even see delivery to our front door using drones.
