Pollens, Dust Mites and More.

Date: Jul 21, 2014

Pollens, Dust Mites and More.

Sunitha Sequeira, MD, talks about controlling your seasonal allergies.

There is a one-in-three possibility of suffering from hearing loss.  If you are fortunate enough not to, most likely you know someone who does.  In the United States, experts estimate that approximately 30% of the population suffers from hearing impairment.  For those individuals over 65, nearly 40% have hearing loss.  Thus, the magnitude of the problem cannot be overstated.
