Free hearing screenings 7/11, 7/18, 7/25 + 8/8
New York’s nonprofit hearing health leader, the Center for Hearing and Communication (CHC), is offering free hearing screenings this summer at the Greenmarket in Union Square.
The public is invited to get a free hearing screening aboard CHC’s Mobile Hearing Test Unit 9:00 am to 3:00 pm on four Mondays this summer starting July 11, 2016. The screenings, which are conducted by a licensed audiologist, take just five minutes and provide valuable hearing health information. No appointment is necessary. Specific dates are July 11, 18, 25 and August 8.
CHC recommends an annual hearing screening
Hearing plays an important role in keeping adults healthy and safe. Studies have shown that untreated hearing loss puts seniors at greater risk for depression, falls and developing dementia. Addressing our hearing problems, however, can keep us healthy and connected to the world around us.
Established in 1910, the Center for Hearing and Communication is a trusted nonprofit resource for information and services related to hearing loss, hearing protection, tinnitus, and auditory processing disorder. In addition to CHC’s mobile outreach program, CHC provides hearing health services of the highest caliber at its office at 50 Broadway in Lower Manhattan.
