Congressman Brings Awareness to Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is a problem that affects people of all ages, not just the elderly.  U.S. Congressman Randy Neugebauer is living proof. On Tuesday, Neugebauer visited the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center, to bring attention to the importance of screenings and hearing loss prevention. The congressman, himself, suffered sudden hearing loss in his left ear in 2004.

The event is part of Speech and Hearing Awareness Month.
