5:30 to 6:30 pm Stephanie Farrell, MBA, RN, CCRC, CPHQ
Director, Research Administration
What are Clinical Trials, Why Do We Need Them, and How Do I Enroll? Clinical trials are important for discovering new treatments for diseases, as well as new ways to detect, diagnose, and reduce the chance of developing the disease. Unfortunately, patients often learn about clinical trials only when faced with the sudden prospect of a serious illness for which no marketed medication is available or adequate.  Join Stephanie Farrell, RN, Director, Research Administration to learn more about the clinical trial process and what you need to know before you enroll.  Join us on Zoom to learn more.

5:30 to 6:30 pm Sherry Ewing, Speech Language Pathologist Communication Challenges When Wearing Face Masks. While individuals in our community are doing their part to slow the spread of coronavirus by wearing face coverings, the masks we are wearing muffle our voices and can make communication frustrating. This is true for everyone right now, but especially so for people with hearing loss as well. We rely on visual cues like facial expressions and lip reading to help understand what people are saying. The difference between a serious statement and a joke is often the smile on our face or the tone of our voice. Please join Sherry Ewing, Speech Language Pathologist, to learn how to make your voice heard.
