Integris provides amplifiers
Hard of hearing? Don't miss out on a word your doctor says.
Hearing loss patients at Integris Baptist Medical Center now have access to Williams Sound Pocketalkers — simple, compact personal amplifiers. The devices may be used throughout a hospital stay.
The Pocketalker “amplifies sound clearly and easily for better understanding,” according to a news release. “It is ideal for one-on-one conversations, TV listening and for visiting with small groups such as care team and family members. It features an external microphone that boosts only the closest immediate sound source in the room. This eliminates unwanted background noise.”
The device works with a variety of earphones and headphones. It can be used with a neck loop and a telecoil-equipped hearing aid. The volume is adjustable.
The amplifiers are available for patient use thanks to Integris Health employees who donated to the “Passion for Hearing” campaign.
For more information or to schedule a hearing evaluation, call the Integris Cochlear Implant Clinic at 947-6030.
Spanish seminar for women is set
Integris Health is hosting its second annual Women of Success seminar on Friday night.
The seminar, sponsored by the Integris Health Hispanic Initiative, will be presented in Spanish.
“The emotional health of women is essential in maintaining a healthy and happy home,” a news release states, “especially her children, husband and in some cases her immediate and extended family. If we have healthy women who can support and build integrated homes, we have a better opportunity to have healthy children with good self-esteem and (the) desire to have a better life and serve their community.”
The seminar is dedicated, the release states, “to promoting women and providing them with tools to make strategic decisions” and look and feel better about themselves.
It will be from 5 to 9 p.m. in the cancer center conference room at Integris Southwest Medical Center, 4301 S Western.
Highlights will include:
“Dress for success,” a talk and demonstration by Byron Dickens, an image consultant.
“Strategies to achieve your goals in 30 days,” a presentation by Lisset Guevara, author and motivational speaker.
“Makeup for every occasion,” presented by Pam Hilliard, beauty consultant.
A free dinner and door prizes.
