Take Charge of Your Hearing Health

Teresa Schlage, hearing instrument specialist

Barbara Barr and Teresa Schlage

On Friday, April 7, at 1 p.m. in the MountainView Ballroom, the Wellness Integrated Network proudly presents Teresa Schlage speaking on “Take Charge of Your Hearing Health.” In this presentation, we will explore the auditory system by explaining how we hear. We will also discuss how hearing changes over time due to genetics, loud noise, and toxic medications, and how ear wax can affect hearing loss. Furthermore, we’ll also examine the five warning signs that your hearing may have changed. Additionally, this will be an opportunity to learn about hearing-related health issues and the increased risks of untreated hearing loss, such as dementia, falls, and Alzheimer’s.

Have you been thinking about hearing aids but have been overwhelmed by all the information? With more than 250 different hearing aid makes, models, and styles, it can take time to understand the available information. We will clarify the differences and give you some basics to help you select the hearing aids that are right for you. In the program, we will look at the latest advancements in hearing aids.

Schlage, hearing instrument specialist, has worked at HearUSA for more than three years and has been providing care to the community for over 10 years. She is passionate about providing “Simply Excellent Hearing Care” for those with difficulty hearing. She was born in Illinois and now lives with her husband west of Tucson. Outside of work, she enjoys hiking and gardening.
