SEMINAR LOCATIONS

Hoglund Family Hearing and Audiology & SW Florida Tinnitus and Hearing strive to be the hearing educational resource for Southwest Florida and we are inviting 30 Seniors to each Lunch and Learn Seminar at local Perkins Restaurants. We will educate you on the truth about Hearing Loss, Hearing Aids and Tinnitus (ringing ears). No hearing aids will be sold at during this program. If you or a loved one experience symptoms of hearing loss, ringing ears or currently wear hearing aids, then don’t miss this exciting opportunity – join us before the snow birds return!

“Hearing is one aspect of health that most people don’t know nearly as much as they’d like to know”, says John Hoglund. “When a group of people get together and they are discussing health issues and someone throws out their blood pressure readings, everyone understands.  When the topic of hearing comes up, you get a lot of glassy stares. We created these lectures series to get through some of the questions about hearing loss in general, branch into the types of hearing aids and their components and also discuss tinnitus, the ringing in the ears.”

Lunch and Learn Seminars occur every 4-6 weeks in Season here in Florida.  Please come back soon for an updated schedule.

Thank you
