Emily Martinson, Au.D., Ph.D.
The sun is shining, the ice cream truck is coming down the street, and kids are putting down the books and headed to camp… summer is here! If you’re anything like me, you’re looking forward to long days by the pool with an ice-cold lemonade and good friends.
As warmer weather approaches, now is the perfect time to get up and out with family and friends. My family loves to spend warm sunny days together at the beach enjoying each other’s company and good conversation. Spending time with loved ones always reminds me what an important gift hearing is. The ability to communicate freely without struggling to understand is so important.
If you are noticing difficulty hearing, it is possible that you may have a hearing loss. With the kids off at camp, now is the perfect time to come in for a hearing test to set your mind at ease. Hearing testing is critically important for everyone across the lifespan, and summer is a great time to take that first step.
We look forward to seeing you soon, and hope you enjoy a very safe and happy beginning of summer!
