Presentation on the interaction between hearing and cognition slated

“Live Well @ The JCC – Power Your Brain, The Relationship Between Hearing and Cognition” will be presented by Dr. Elizabeth Aspell at 10:30 a.m. on March 7 at The Jewish Community Center of Middlesex County, 1775 Oak Tree Rd., Edison.

Recent research suggests that hearing difficulty can negatively impact a person’s cognition and overall quality of life. The Audiology Department at JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute has implemented a complete audiological rehab program that focuses on brain training exercises in addition to traditional amplification. Learn about the complex interaction between hearing and cognition in this presentation. Dr. Aspell has been an audiologist since 2006, receiving her doctorate from Vanderbilt University. She has received awards from Vanderbilt and has been listed in NJ Family Health Magazine’s “TopDoc” in 2014, 2015, and 2016.

The cost is free and open to the community as space allows.
