This year, Avada Hearing Care Centers, operating subsidiary of Hearing Healthcare Management, Inc, (HHM), including Avada of St. Cloud, MN, located at 1411, West St. Germain, Suite 203, is offering free hearing screenings through- out the month Of June to not only honor St. Cloud-area fathers, but families everywhere. "Fathers are often so busy thinking about the well-being of their families that they may neglect their own health. This can- not only have a negative impact on them. but on their children and other family members, as well," said Jim Neve, regional director of Avada of ~t, G1Oudf addin~ that Men's Health Week, which is June 15-21, help,3 to create awareness that men can take control of their health by participating in health screeriings. "Hearing screenings are an important preventative measure because one of the effects of hear- ing loss is a breakdown in fam- ily communications, which can have a profound effect on relation- ships. It is important to encourage your father to take care of himself by coming in this month for a free hearing screening." Neve stresses the impor- tance of telling anyone you _care about to take care of their hear- ing, "This Country and our com- munity must stop treating hear- ing loss as a mino~ problem. Cur- rently, more than 24 million peo- ple in the United States who say they have hearing loss have not may include hearing devices. The good news is that hearing loss can easily be diagnosed and for most people, there are solutions in the form of digital and programma- ble hearing instruments, many of which are not visible." Research shows that when peo- ple cannot hear properly, they make less money. Sergei Koch- kin, Ph.D, executive director of the Better Hearing Institute says, "Unaddressed hearing loss has a negative impact on overall job effectiveness, opportunity for pro- motion, and even lifelong earn, ing power." A hearing loss can be an impediment to job perfor- mance, which could be a dan- ger to job security, and an- inabil- ity to hear can disrupt family life, Symptoms of hearing loss include not being able to understand well in a crowded room or restaurant, having to ask family and friends to repeat what they are saying, or not bdiflg able to hear sounds that oth- ers seem to be able to hear. Everyone over the age of 55 should have annual hearing screenings. Avada of St. Cloud offers free hearing screenings for those interested. Nationwide, Avada Hearing Care Centers' mission has always been to serve the hearing impaired with the highest degree of profes- sionalism, technology and service available.

It is important for people to remember that early in the season, although the air temperature may be 70 degrees, most of the bodies of water are still in the 40s and 50s. Even the strongest swimmer can become quickly incapacitated by cold water shock and suffer hypo- thermia within an hour. This means it is especially important to make sure everyone not only has a lifejacket but also wears one. Make sure navigation lights are all in proper working order, and be sure to use them between sunset and sunrise. Also, be sure the boat registration decal is current and check air pressure on trailer tires, pack a spare, and make sure the axle bearings are freshly greased. Finally, itis a good idea to leave the alcohol at home. Many of the boat- ing accidents that result in injury, or worse, are the result of intoxi- cated boaters.
