Weill Cornell Medicine Events

Making Sense of Hearing Loss and Over-the-Counter Hearing Aids

Featuring: Dr. Joseph Montano, Jennifer Rhoades, Au.D., CCC-A, Maria Pomponio, Au.D., CCC-A

The American Speech-Language Hearing Association estimates that over 51% of adults report having issues with their hearing, yet only 11% of those have sought treatment.

Join us for a special seminar featuring members of Weill Cornell Medicine's audiology team, who will discuss hearing loss, recent FDA guidance on hearing aids and more. Topics will include:

  • My hearing is not quite what it used to be. When should I get it checked?
  • What does a hearing test involve?
  • Who are over-the-counter hearing aids designed for?
  • What are the benefits of a professionally fitted hearing aid vs. an OTC one?
  • Do I still need to see an audiologist if I get an OTC hearing aid?
  • And much more…

This event will also include a limited Q&A section.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Reserve your space today.

About Hearing Loss

While the medical community has made great strides in the prevention and treatment of hearing loss in recent decades, many common risk factors still affect youths and adults daily, ranging from workplace hazards to recreational noise. Yet, sound-induced hearing loss is highly preventable with proper precautions.

Join us for our awareness event to learn more about hearing loss and the modern advances used to treat this common disorder.
