The Greater Tucson Fire Foundation
This month, Beltone sponsored the The Greater Tucson Fire Foundation Breakfast for their retirees. This event was an opportunity to socialize within our community and educate those who have helped us in the past about hearing health and the importance of hearing exams and early detection.
1 in 10 Americans has a hearing loss
1 in 6 baby boomers has a hearing loss
1 out of 4 people over 65 has a hearing loss
1 in 2 people over the age of 75 has a hearing loss
Hearing loss is the 3rd most prevalent chronic condition behind arthritis and hypertension (high blood pressure)
No matter how healthy we keep ourselves, it is inevitable that our hearing will deteriorate as we get older.
It is now recommended to have your hearing checked once a year by a professional starting at 50.
