LBLC Members Learn About “Delaware Hearing Connection

                                 Submitted by Lion John Monahan

Lions attending the Member Meeting held on Wednesday, February 20, had the opportunity to learn of some new innovations and recent changes to help those in search of better hearing. Dr. Sara Conrad, a local audiologist at Bayside Audiology & Hearing Aids in Lewes and the Founder of the Delaware Hearing Connection was Guest Speaker for the meeting. Dr. Conrad, who earned her Clinical Doctorate in Audiology from James Madison University, gave a thoughtful talk on the issues facing people with hearing loss. Dr. Conrad shared that “Hearing loss affects about 10% of the overall population and approximately 1 in 3 over 60, 2 out of 3 over 70, and over 90% of those over 80 have hearing loss.” .Sara added that,” Only 1 in 5 people who could be benefitting from hearing aids are actually wearing them and studies cite that the cost of hearing aids as one of the prevalent reasons that people don’t pursue help”.

Dr. Conrad told members about the Delaware Hearing Connection that she founded as a 501©(3) Nonprofit Organization, that is dedicated to making sure all of our local residents have access to better hearing despite financial limitations. The DHC provides hearing evaluations, hearing aids and assistive learning devices. Sara will also assist patients where needed in finding which philanthropic organization may be best to use and assist in completing the application. She answered many questions about hearing aids and devices. Dr. Conrad encouraged the Lions to share information about the Delaware Hearing Connection with any interested individuals, family members or friends and to contact her to learn more about services offered.
