Better Hearing Workshop
The Better Hearing Workshop, lead by the UNC Hearing and Communication Center, is a 4-week series designed to provide information about hearing loss and hearing aid use, as well as communication strategies that would be useful for the primary communcation partner. These workshops address many frequently asked questions including:

  • If one needs hearing aids, what options are there and which are the best?
  • How can one better maintain hearing aids to extend their life?
  • Why do people with expensive digital hearing aids still say "What?"
  • What other ways can one improve hearing in difficult listening situations?

The series begins Thursday, Oct. 22 and continues Oct. 29, Nov. 5 and Nov. 12 from 2 - 3:30 p.m. The series costs $35.
