In honor of Better Hearing and Speech Month in May, Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare (FSLH) will offer free hearing screenings throughout the month at the Regional Rehabilitation Center at the Faxton Campus, 1676 Sunset Avenue, Utica. Adults and children four years of age or older are welcome.

Screenings will be held on Friday, May 4 from 8am to noon; Friday, May 11 from 1pm to 4:30pm; Tuesday, May 15 from 8am to 4:30pm; Wednesday, May 23 from 8am to noon; and Thursday, May 31 from 1pm to 4:30pm.

One in six Americans has a hearing, speech or language problem – conditions that make it difficult to communicate with others. Untreated, these problems can limit you at home, school and work. Anyone, of any age, can have or develop a hearing impairment that impacts the ability to hear, speak or understand effectively.

To register, please call the Audiology Department at FSLH’s Regional Rehabilitation Center at (315) 624-4600.
