Ask the Expert: Treat Cognitive Decline by Treating Hearing Loss
Learn more about our educational programs at Tudor Heights.
Wednesday, January 29 at 5:30 pm
Presented by Dr. Rory D. Cernik, CEO/President, Doctor of Audiology, Director of Clinical Services
Hearing Assessment Center
Groundbreaking work at Johns Hopkins Medical Center indicates hearing loss can increase the risk of dementia by 200-500%.
Join us for this engaging discussion with Dr. Cernik on how treating hearing loss correctly can have a significant impact on several key brain areas, including the memory, hearing, speech and language portions of cognition.
Dr. Cernik has received extensive training from some of the brightest minds in audiology. During his doctoral training, he focused his research on the auditory system’s response to stimulation and deprivation. These studies serve as the foundation for what we know today; that hearing loss, if left untreated, increases the likelihood of cognitive atrophy and decline. Dr. Cernik’s passion is to properly educate and rehabilitate the cognitive aspects of those living with hearing loss.
Light refreshments will be served.
