A growing number of people have noticed hearing loss over the COVID pandemic. A 2021 survey by the Hearing Loss Association of America and Cochlear found people not only became more aware of their hearing loss but felt they had a harder time communicating and said it impacted other areas of their health.

This week we are talking about what’s causing this trend, what to look out for, and a big milestone in hearing loss treatment at Saint Luke’s with Kristen Lewis, audiologist with Saint Luke’s Midwest Ear Institute.
