Better Hearing and Speech Month

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month, an opportunity to raise awareness about communication disorders, hearing impairment, and life-altering treatment. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, “Approximately 46 million Americans experience some form of communication disorder. Communication disorders can comprise physical and emotional health and affect the social, educational, vocation, and recreational aspects of life.” They also state that approximately 37.5 million people in the US report some degree of hearing loss.

Having skilled hearing and speech professionals at Hutchinson Health provides patients with the treatment and screenings needed. Our Audiologist, ENT, and our Speech-Language Pathologists are here to provide screenings and help you improve your hearing and speech with the right course of treatment.
