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.
