Choices. A full year of choices lies ahead. Will you resolve to be different, to make better choices? How will you choose and will those choices last? Psychologists say that it takes at least 30 days to transform a new daily action into a habit.
One of my resolutions is to improve my ability to serve those with hearing loss in the new year. New research in audiology is always paving the way for incremental practice improvements. I plan to offer two new types of tests early this year: a speech in noise test and a test that helps me judge your tolerance for background noise. These tests are quick to administer and they’ll allow me to provide more specific and appropriate counsel regarding ways to help you hear better.
I also plan to reach out with more educational events. When I speak, I usually teach about the impact hearing loss has on relationships and offer strategies for better communication. If you group desires, I can talk about recent developments in hearing technology as well. My event schedule (so far) is as follows:
- January 10: Speaker at the Northampton Church of Christ Men’s Breakfast at The Lunch Bell in Newport News, VA
- January 30: Senior Advocate Clergy event at Windsor Meade in Williamsburg, VA
- February 21: Senior Advocate Clergy event at The Chamberlin in Hampton, VA
- March (date TBD): Speaker at the German-American Society of Newport News, VA
- April 9: Speaker at the National Association of Retired Federal Employees, Newport News, VA
If your group is in the Virginia Tidewater area and you’re looking for speakers for 2012, give me a call at 757-344-5030 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
