The goal of our seminar is to empower you or your loved one to improve your hearing.
Millions of Americans have hearing loss, yet most do not seek help right away. We hope to
help consumers seek treatment earlier to achieve better hearing results. The average
patient with hearing loss waits 7-10 years before seeking treatment. We believe this is too
many years of missed communication, memories and important moments in life. Our
seminars are our way to share our expertise and help educate the public to take better care
of their hearing health.
All seminars are free to attend.
We kindly ask you to RSVP. In the event that you cannot attend, we kindly ask that you
let us know so that we can invite another guest on our wait list.
