A recent consumer survey by Deloitte reported that close to nine out of 10 adults (aged 18-75) have a phone that can support mobile applications. In fact, 95 percent of smartphone owners use their device every day for such activities as online searching, watching and recording videos, checking bank balances, social media and networks, reading the news, playing games, making voice calls, and taking photos.

Over 36 million American adults have some degree of hearing loss. That is over 4 times the amount of people who live in New York City. The statistics are shocking and even more so knowing that over half of those 36 million Americans are under the age of 65. Hearing loss is an increasing health concern in this nation that is often preventable. Taking time to see an audiologist for regular hearing screenings and knowing the signs of hearing loss can protect your hearing. Tustin Hearing Center is encouraging you to make an appointment with an audiologist this October during National Audiology Awareness Month.
