SIU Med School Clinicians to Present Information about Tinnitus

Medical evaluation, therapy and treatment of tinnitus (ringing in the ears) are the topics of a free educational seminar being presented by the SIU Hearing & Balance Clinic at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine.

The session will be presented from 5:30 - 7 p.m. Thursday, May 8, at the Dove Conference Center at St. John’s Hospital, 619 E. Mason St., Springfield.

Dr. Carol Bauer, professor and chair of the Division of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery and a nationally known tinnitus researcher, will discuss the medical evaluation and management of tinnitus. She will be joined by Doctors of Audiology, Jennifer Parrish and Kendra Watts, who will discuss the relationship between tinnitus, hearing loss, hearing aids, and other tinnitus management devices. Also, two SIU patients who have been treated for tinnitus will discuss their care.

Attendees are invited to bring a spouse or friend. Light refreshments will be served.
