NOW HEAR THIS! -- Free Hearing Screenings at Access Living

The Junior League of Chicago, as part of its Centennial celebration of service, is hosting complimentary hearing screenings to raise awareness about noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) from 10a.m. to 2p.m. on Saturday, May 5, at Access Living. Join League volunteers in celebrating 100 years of service to the Chicago area, as they team with other organizations to help educate people of all ages about the alarming increase in hearing loss.
The event kicks off “Listen Up! Turn It Down,” a series of free hearing health screenings as part of Better Hearing Month in May. The May 5 event is supported by Access Living, Chicago Hearing Society, Children’s Memorial Hospital, Empowerment Through Hearing, Illinois Hands and Voices, Rush University Medical Center, Sensaphonics, and area audiologists, who are volunteering their time and services.
In addition to the screenings, there will be hearing health vendors and professionals on-site to provide resources for communication supports, special mentoring opportunities and information on products and services associated with hearing loss.
