“For the Health of It” Wellness and Fitness Fair at the Bend Senior Center

Pacific Northwest Audiology was a proud sponsor of the “For the Health of It” Wellness and Fitness Fair in the Bend Senior Center, on Thursday, September 20.

Numerous people stopped at our booth for free consultations on hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears), hearing aid cleaning and trouble shooting, or volume testing/adjustments of their iPods and MP3 players for threatening decibel levels. Others had a chance to see their eardrum helicopter game sale through the eyes of a video Otoscope! Of course, the dark chocolate Ears were a big hit! A Newsletter describing the event can be found here: For the Health of It Flier 2012 final

Dr. Li-Korotky also presented a Seminar entitled “Age-Related Hearing Loss: Facts, Impacts, and Solutions”, followed by a lively discussion Aufblasbare Kugel. A PDF of the seminar can be found here: ARHL Presentation

Focus on Mental Health

Raising Awareness of the Link between Depression and Unaddressed Hearing Loss

Pacific Northwest Audiology is joining the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) in raising awareness of the link between depression and untreated hearing loss in recognition of World Mental Health Day (October 10), National Depression Screening Day® (October 11), and Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 7-13). Research shows that hearing loss frequently co-exists with depression and/or anxiety, and that people with untreated hearing loss may be at an increased risk of depression. Pacific Northwest Audiology is urging people within the Bend and Central Oregon community to take the Across America Hearing Check Challenge at inflatable rock climbing wall, a free online hearing check that lets people quickly and confidentially determine if they need a comprehensive hearing evaluation by a certified Audiologist. To support these awareness efforts, Pacific Northwest Audiology is holding free hearing screenings through October. Residents of Bend and surrounding communities can visit our office for comprehensive audiological evaluations. You can self-book an online appointment if you wish. helicopter game sale Otherwise you can call us at 541-678-5698 and mention free hearing evaluation.
