Hearing Loss: The Silent Epidemic

How did a hospital pharmacist get into this? Monique got into safety work after she went deaf in her left ear (due to an extremely loud church fundraiser of all places!). She had to quit her job. Monique then studied, wrote the book: What Did You Say? and was appointed by the governor to the Commission of Deaf, Deaf-Blind and Hard of Hearing Minnesotans (MCDHH). In her presentation, Monique discusses various aspects of hearing and stresses that hearing loss is permanent and not only for older people anymore. Monique also discusses how to prevent hearing loss and ways to better cope with it. Please note: this is not a sales pitch – rather, we are on a mission: to keep people hearing better longer. Our concern is that Hearing Loss cases are growing rapidly in the US.

Monique has spoken to over 100 Rotary Clubs as well as over 120 other groups – to over 5000 members of the public and also to over 3000 employees at 60 Special Employee Safety Meetings. Monique is on a mission: to keep people hearing better longer - Hearing Loss cases are growing rapidly in the US. She is working to educate Rotarians about Hearing so that they can help families protect their ears. Last Summer, Monique spoke to the Rotary Club #10 in St.Paul and it was very well received.
