Providing Valuable Information
March 17 - Listening Skills
Dr. Cris Epstein
Dr. Cris Epstein an audiologist and is the head of the cochlear implant program at the Presbyterian Ear Institute in Albuquerque. She has worked with cochlear implant recipients since 1999 and works with children and adults. She will be sharing with us one of her favorite topics: listening training. While listening training is integral to successful cochlear implants, there is clear evidence that those who are new to hearing aids (and most likely have had a hearing loss for a while) will benefit from listening training also. As a scientist, she will be able to share the latest in research in the correlation between hearing loss and dementia.
