Description

Free Public Lecture

Hearing loss, tinnitus and brain health

Prof Peter Thorne

Hearing and balance together provide us with a sense of self within our world, allowing us to connect with and navigate through our environment and to interact and socially connect with people. Disruption of these sensory systems affects our ability to perform these critical functions, which can have profound effects on physical and mental wellness.

Hearing loss and tinnitus affects between 10 and 18 percent of the population. Similarly disorders of balance are more common than we often imagine, affecting four out of 10 people in some way. Maintaining good brain health as we age continues to be important as hearing and balance deficits are increasingly being shown to be risk factors for developing dementia.

Professor Thorne will describe new approaches to diagnose, treat or prevent these conditions, to understand more about how these conditions affect brain health as we age. He'll discuss their impact on people, families and whanau, and potential to develop policy for better service delivery, early detection and interventions.

When: Tuesday 12 September at 7pm

Where: AMRF Auditorium, Ground Floor, Faculty of Medical & Health Sciences, University of Auckland, 85 Park Road, Grafton, Auckland

Parking will be available in the Domain, surrounding streets or in the Hospital Car Park in Park Road.
