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.
