Monique Hammond
Hearing Loss – the Silent Epidemic?

Zoom presentation

Monique has spoken to over 100 Rotary Clubs as well as over 140 other groups - to over 5000 members of the public and also to over 2500 employees at Special Employee Safety Meetings. Monique got into safety work after she went deaf in her left ear (due to an extremely loud band at a church fundraiser of all places!). She had to quit her job as a Hospital Pharmacist. 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.
