*START TIME IS 2PM* All About Hearing Aids (2:00) on Zoom

With Over the Counter Hearing Aids now available, Cambridge Neighbors is happy to have two guest speakers, Thomas A. Powers, PhD as well as
Melissa Mahaffey, Doctor of Audiology at West Newton Hearing Center, talk about the options in hearing aids and personal sound amplification products (PSAPs) individuals now have.

He began his career as a partner in an Audiology private practice and has over 35 years of experience in the hearing health care industry.

Dr. Powers will talk about the latest Over the Counter Hearing Aids now available and how those differ with prescribed hearing aids. He will also talk about some of the Personal Sound Amplification Products available and how those differ from hearing aids.

Melissa Mahaffey from West Newton Hearing Center will then speak about the higher-end options in hearing aids when a prescription for such is necessary and will point out some of the newest technological features of such. Melissa is a doctor of Audiology and has worked in her field for 23 years.
