Michael Nilsson, VP for Auditory Research at Sonic Innovations, talks with Joyce about hearing -- the role it plays in our lives, what happens when hearing is diminished, how to recognize that it's time to see an audiologist, and what options there may be for healing or compensating for hearing loss. It's not just older people -- 43% of people with hearing loss are under 55. And among people with hearing loss there is a much higher incidence of depression anxiety, insecurity, worry, and low self-esteem.
