ALOHA Educational Seminar – Far Horizons Friday, February 17
Being fitted for hearing aids can be an overwhelming experience. Many of us forget some things that were explained to us by the time we get home. Attend the Educational Seminar at Far Horizons – East with Kerry Hamm on Friday, February 17 from 1:00–2:00 pm. Kerry is a hearing instrument specialist who will be reviewing some important information you may have missed at your fitting such as maintenance and cleaning of your hearing aids.
