WOW! forum focuses on hearing health

Curt Miller presents a free WOW! Working on Wellness Forum entitled “Hearing Health” at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 10, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., Sequim.

The forum addresses many hearing problems that can accrue from different prescribed medication, untreated high blood pressure, depression and some forms of diabetes. With proper testing and consulting, persons can learn how to have successful hearing while they are aging.

“My success is measured in my patients’ success, not in number of hearing aids sold,” Miller says.

Hearing loss is personal for Miller, a clinical audiologist with more than 30 years of experience and owner of Olympic Hearing Center. Hearing impaired since childhood, his goal is to provide patients with expert testing, innovative technology, and compassionate service.

From 1:45-2:15 p.m., volunteer nurses from the clinic will be available to check the blood pressure of anyone who may be interested.

WOW! Working on Wellness is a health education program of Dungeness Valley Health & Wellness Clinic, Sequim’s free clinic. The clinic provides basic urgent care and chronic health care services to uninsured community members.

Clinic work is supported by more than 70 volunteers, including physicians, other professional health care providers and laypersons, as well as private and public donations from the Sequim community and beyond.

The Basic Urgent Care Clinic is open to patients on Monday and Thursday evenings beginning at 5 p.m. Individuals interested in supporting the clinic may call 360-582-0218.
