Hearing health addressed at free forum

SEQUIM — A free WOW! Working on Wellness forum will address hearing issues at 2:30 p.m. Jan. 10.

Curt C. Miller II, a clinical audiologist with more than 30 years of experience and owner of Olympic Hearing Center, will present “Hearing Health” at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave.

Hearing loss is personal for Miller, who has been hearing impaired since childhood.

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

The forum will address the many hearing problems that can accrue from different prescribed medications, untreated high blood pressure, depression and some forms of diabetes.

With proper testing and consulting, people can learn how to have successful hearing while aging, Miller said.

From 1:45 p.m. to 2:15 p.m., volunteer nurses from the clinic will be available to check the blood pressure of anyone 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. The clinic is supported by more than 70 volunteers, including physicians, other professional health care providers and laypersons.

The Basic Urgent Care Clinic is open to patients Monday and Thursday evenings beginning at 5.

Individuals interested in supporting the clinic can call 360-582-0218.
