Hearing Loss Resources

Hearing loss affects nearly two-thirds of adults 70 years and older in the United States. Once thought to be a benign part of the aging process, research within the last decade has demonstrated that age-related hearing loss is strongly and independently associated with various negative outcomes like increased risk of social isolation, depression, and accelerated cognitive decline. Join us for this webinar to learn how to age well with hearing loss and get access to the hearing healthcare services you or your loved ones need in Baltimore City!”

On the Independence Amplified Maryland call on Monday, March 29, 2021, we discussed resources for hearing loss with speakers from Hearing & Speech-Language Services (HASA), MD Technology Assistance Program (MDTAP), and the Maryland Accessible Telecommunications (MAT) program!
