Professor Suzanne Bonneau Miller and her students in the Chico State Communication Sciences and Disorders Program are offering two activities for OLLI that address hearing loss and identify ways we can improve the overall classroom experience by becoming more aware of issues and techniques used to address hearing loss. Your participation can help foster this ongoing relationship with CMSD and lead to more shared teaching-learning opportunities.
Sign up now! Space is limited.
Hearing Screenings & Poster Session
OLLI participants will meander through informative posters and learn about healthy hearing and issues related to hearing loss from graduate students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders Program (CMSD). Then participants will have their hearing screened by supervised CMSD graduate students. The total time for this activity should be one hour for each participant. There are multiple screening times available. Sign up for the one that works best for you.
