Our ability to hear and communicate effectively is something we often take for granted, but for those who have difficulty hearing, everyday interactions can pose significant challenges.
Baycrest was featured on CBC News: The National for its expertise on July 18, 2023, in a report about a recent study on how hearing aids can reduce dementia risk for some older adults. Marilyn Reed, Baycrest Audiologist and Dr. Bjorn Herrmann, Scientist at the Rotman Research Institute (RRI) appeared in the segment.
