Research shows evidence of a link between hearing loss and mild cognitive impairment, condition that can be a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease. Hearing loss can mimic symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

Join us for lunch to learn the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s, the importance of early diagnosis, the diagnostic process, and how hearing loss can affect cognitive functioning.

This program will feature presentations by Cynthia Davenport, M.Ed.Alzheimer’s Association education and outreach specialist, and Lisa M. Reedy, AuD, from Centers For Hearing Care in Pepper Pike. Dr. Reedy will discuss the importance of screening and further explain the connection between hearing loss and dementia. She will also provide complimentary hearing screenings after the presentation.

This event is free and open to the public.

Seating is limited. Please call 800-272-3900 to register. Deadline to register is June 21st.
