“Use it or lose it!” Did you know that this phrase can apply to your hearing health? Recent research has highlighted risks of untreated hearing loss, including cognitive impairment. Studies have also suggested that treating hearing loss, such as through hearing aids, can reduce risk of dementia.

Tune in for a webinar which explores the relationship between hearing loss and cognition, with information on your options for preventing and treating hearing loss.This event will be hosted by Elizabeth Abbs, Doctor of Audiology, from Village sponsor Midwest ENT, and will feature plenty of time for Q&A with our hearing expert.

Elizabeth A. Abbs is a Doctor of Audiology. She completed her undergraduate career at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she obtained a bachelor’s degree in speech and hearing science with a concentration in audiology. She went on to complete her clinical doctorate degree in audiology from Northwestern University. Clinically, she provides the following services: adult diagnostic testing for hearing loss, hearing aid evaluations, fittings and  services, tinnitus management and counseling, and testing/treatment for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. Outside of work you might find her exercising, spending time with friends and family, or trying out new restaurants.
