Wow! What an amazing year the Findlay Hearing Center had. Earlier in the spring of 2015 we hosted a very successful open house event. We welcomed a little over 230 people who enjoyed great food, drinks and some wonderful music by one of my good friends. I remember riding home that night with tears pf pure joy streaming down my face. So thank you from the bottom of my heart all who attended and helped make this launch party a huge success!
September we welcomed Dana to the team. She is a huge help at the office. She is currently enrolled and targeted to have her hearing aid license by the end of the year. She is also getting ready to finish up her PPA training in March this year! Mandy completed her yearlong PPA training in October. I was so proud of her accomplishment I nearly teared up at her ceremony. She is now working on her hearing aid license and projected to finish by the end of the yet. I am so proud of our team and all their hard work over the last year, I hope you make the time to get to know them and tell them "Good Job!" if you get the chance.
In late October we found ourselves at the Findlay-Hancock County Chamber of Commerce small business award luncheon. Again WOW! Sitting in the room with so many amazing business people was an honor itself.
2016 started with my going to the Hearing Expo in Vegas. The event, was again, a WOW! The hearing technology exhibited at the Expo has taken an amazing turn. I was able to see the new technology platform being released early this spring called, "The Muse." which is a wireless predict to help the patient who might have a unique hearing loss in just one ear. To explain a little more; if the hearing loss in the poorer ear is profound in nature and makes the ear "unaidable" (meaning that a hearing aid cannot help that particular ear), The Muse system is recommended when the wearer has normal to severe hearing in his/her better ear. Another glimpse into the future was the use of artificial intelligence for hearing gloss. I know that is a lot to understand and I will be more than happy to talk about it with you at the office.
