        2017-11-14: Potentially Maximize Your Social Security Benefit

Have you thought how the decisions you make now can have an impact on the total amount of benefits you stand to receive over your lifetime? You've paid into the Social Security program for over 30 years, doesn't it make sense to learn how to get the maximum benefits you are entitled to? Don't wait until the last minute to discover your benefit options. This one-hour workshop is offered at no cost, with no obligation, and a complimentary Social Security Benefits analysis and strategy report.

If your "stenosis diagnosis" has caused you all sorts of confusion and panic, take heart. Many people with stenosis are living symptom-free. Ready to become your spine's number one advocate? Then don't miss this great discussion!

        2018-01-23: Current Research in Hearing Loss & Hearing Aids

    The more we delve into hearing loss, the more we find that the hearing system is affected by all parts of the human body. Did you know that people with kidney disease have a much higher incidence of hearing loss? Did you know there is a strong correlation between hearing loss and dementia. Current research continues to amaze us and show us how important addressing hearing loss is for overall health. The fact that the hearing system is so complex makes solving issues equally complex. Today?s aids can deliver better speech clarity, more natural sound and better functioning in groups. Come listen to Leigh Kjeldsen, Au.D. and find out about the latest in hearing loss and hearing research.
