Hearing loss and tinnitus impact millions of people every day. With our current “plugged-in” society, where ear-worn devices are part of the every day, the dangers of hearing loss as a result of loud noise exposure becomes a real threat to everyone, not just factory workers and military.
We will discuss the causes and types of hearing loss and tinnitus, treatments, and communication strategies to circumvent these difficulties. Hearing loss prevention is a critical piece of counseling and outreach and will be discussed as well.

Dr. Powner received her Au.D. from the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) and completed her capstone studies on the auditory plasticity of pitch perception in musicians.
