Biz Brief | Nightingale attends national confererence

Megan Nightingale of Peninsula Hearing in Poulsbo recently returned from a national conference of leading hearing care professionals in Phoenix that looked at the impact of hearing loss on cognitive ability.

For people with hearing loss, the brain works overtime to translate signals and understand speech, especially in noisy environments such as restaurants, business meetings and social gatherings.

A hearing exam can quickly and painlessly pinpoint a hearing loss. Nightingale is one of the first hearing care professionals in the United States to offer the new Oticon Agil -- a hearing instrument specifically designed to enable people with hearing loss to minimize the cognitive energy expended in typical listening environments without compromising sound quality and speech understanding.

For more information contact Nightingale at (360) 697-3061.
