[ARCHIVED] Orange County to host presentation on hearing and aging


The Orange County Department on Aging and the Project EngAGE Mental Wellness Senior Resource Team invite the public to attend a presentation, “Aging and the Five Senses: Hearing,” on September 14.

Did you know that hearing loss is one of the most significant changes in our five senses when it comes to aging? If left untreated, hearing loss can lead to an increased risk for cognitive decline. Join Patricia Johnson, Audiologist with UNC Hearing Communication Center, as we normalize this adjustment and discuss the important topic of how our hearing changes as we age! 

We’ll focus on types of hearing loss such as presbycusis, tinnitus, and conductive hearing loss. We’ll also discuss risk factors, impacts of hearing loss and the connection between hearing and brain health, prevention and health management, and local options. 

The event is hosted by Project EngAGE Mental Wellness Senior Resource team, and will take place on Thu., Sep 14, from 4 - 5:30 pm at the Seymour Center located at 2551 Homestead Road in Chapel Hill. 

Please register by Wed, Sep 13, with the Seymour Center front desk at 919-968-2070.  

For more information, please contact Lydia Arnold at or 919-245-4276.
