Thanksgiving time is here and a great opportunity to extend our thoughts to all of our friends and family! As we think about the upcoming holiday, we also want to take this time to thank all of our friends, patients and everyone important in our lives. We want to let you know how appreciative we are of the trust you have put in all of us at Audiology and Hearing Aid Center.
It is hard to believe that 2015 is coming to a close. Years seem to pass even more quickly with changes happening all around us. You may remember
In the month of September, Audiology & Hearing Aid Center is partnering with Literacy for a Lifetime, a 50% grant matching program available through Usborne Books & More, to provide quality literature for local children in need. Having books in the home is the single biggest predictor of academic success, but many of these children have no access to books.
In looking for a place to donate books, we have learned about the Bethesda Community Baptist Church, which is in the process of opening The Community Library. This library will provide a place where children and adults can access books and
It's Baseball Season!
As you may remember, the Audiology and Hearing Aid Center Team gets together at the beginning of each month to select a charity to support for our Charity Spotlight. We were recently introduced to The Miracle League of Arizona, a non-profit organization, whose mission is to provide opportunities for children with disabilities to play Miracle League baseball, regardless of their abilities. They understand that they cannot change or cure the medical issues life has dealt children with disabilities, but what they can do is provide them with an opportunity to experience the joy and benefits that come from
Time to Turn Down the Noise
In last month's Email Newsletter, we discussed the fact that noise induced hearing loss can be permanent. This month, we would like to offer a few suggestions on ways to protect yourself from the sounds around you.
The World is Noisy
Our world has become too noisy. We all have known the dangers of occupational exposure, but now non-occupational noise exposure has increased enough so that it is a public health concern. Did you know that all it takes is brief exposure of just 30 seconds or less to very loud noise to cause permanent auditory damage?
Time to Protect Your Hearing
Hearing once lost, cannot be fully regained!
There are signs all around reminding us that summer is in full swing! You will see road and building construction, the Fourth of July fireworks and outdoor rock concerts. All are signs that families are enjoying summertime activities...and all are very noisy.
What you may not know is that noise-induced hearing loss can be permanent. The damage to the ear cannot be repaired, but there are options to improve the hearing. For example, hearing aids have become much more innovative and many have improved, contemporary and discreet designs.

All of us at Audiology and Hearing Aid Center are focused on providing you with information necessary to make the best and most informed decision for your hearing health needs. We all see lots of ads in the paper, online and in the big box stores for low priced hearing aid technology, but is this savings providing the quality hearing you are looking for long term? Do you actually own hearing aids, but they sit in a drawer, wasting the money you spent because you don't have an audiologist to assist you with service and support?
FREE Educational Seminars
Finding the best
All of us at Audiology and Hearing Aid Center are excited to announce that we have accomplished our Mission - to test over 1000 patients' hearing in 2014 by providing FREE hearing screenings. We just recently tallied the number of patients we screened last year and are proud to report we tested over 1,250 people!
Most folks understand the importance of getting a yearly physical, a mammogram for women over 40 and even yearly dental appointments. What people don't seem to remember is the importance of getting yearly hearing screenings as well.
Hearing loss can affect not only your ability to communicate
Happy New Year! It is hard to believe we are half way through January in the year 2015. The time is flying by and we have been very busy since the holidays and have some new exciting things to share.
First, we want to tell you about the organization we selected this month as our Community Spotlight - The Starkey Foundation. This organization's mission, "So the World May Hear," is about bringing understanding between people through caring and sharing. They conduct hearing missions in the United States and around the globe in an effort to bring the gift of hearing to
