“Hear Ye… Hear Ye”
A Fearrington Cares Health Education Program
Thursday, February 25, 1:30 pm via Zoom
Dr. Stephanie Sjoblad, an audiologist with the UNC Medical Center's Audiology Department, will speak on various aspects of auditory health and communication. She will discuss how best to communicate while wearing a mask, highlight resources that may be used with online communication, and cover other tips for communicating as one ages and loses hearing. There will be ample time for questions.
Dr. Sjoblad has provided hearing care services at Carolina Meadows for almost 20 years. She understands hearing loss in a unique way, having grown up as one of three siblings with congenital hearing loss. She has worn hearing aids since the age of six and received a cochlear implant in 2009. She now has bimodal hearing (one hearing aid and one cochlear implant). Dr. Sjoblad has been a member of the faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill since 1999 and the Clinic Director for the UNC Hearing and Communication Center since 2001. Her practice incorporates the most current research in audiology/ communication.
