Feb. 18: Free Educational Seminar on Hearing

Unlike many communities with a predominantly 55+ population, Phoenix Commons advocates a philosophy of conscious aging, in which community members openly acknowledge the issues associated with their aging and find ways to support one another as they grow into elderhood. Education is a crucial component of this approach to aging, as it raises awareness of the issues and allows us to prepare for various scenarios.

Phoenix Commons is pleased to announce a free educational seminar sponsored by its nonprofit partner, Elders Village. Dr. Garr Crookston, Au.D., will provide an overview of age-related hearing issues, diseases and conditions that result in hearing loss, why certain sounds are harder to hear, and how to best preserve your hearing. The seminar will be held at the Alameda Free Library (1550 Oak Street) on Wednesday, February 18, 1-2 pm. Please spread the word about this free educational seminar, attendees may RSVP by calling Samantha at 510-217-8527 or emailing [email protected]
