Hearing loss is a major public health issue affecting people of all ages, and is the third most common physical condition after arthritis and heart disease. Hearing loss can be mild, moderate, severe, or profound. The younger in life it is present, the more damage it can do unless if corrected early. More often than not, severe tinnitus (or ringing in the ears) accompanies the hearing loss and may be just as debilitating as the hearing loss itself. Despite that, people do not wish to wear hearing aids because of the associated stigma. But there are alternative ways to treat.
Dr. Dylan Chan, MD, PhD, an assistant professor and a specialist/surgeon in the UCSF Department of Otolaryngology and the Douglas Grant Cochlear Implant Center, has generously offered to take time out of his busy schedule to give this community class in his compassion to raise awareness to this common health problem. He plans to discuss with you the signs, implications, and cutting-edge solutions available. “Some Chinese kids are more prone to the hearing loss problem,” Dr. Chan lamented. Want to find out why and more? Please come and join us in this upcoming free and bilingual (English/Cantonese) lecture, when he will address hearing loss in both the very young and the old.
