According Dr. Jonathan Gervais of the Hearing Wellness Center in Duluth, hearing loss affects nearly 40 million people in the United States. That is why May is a very important month.

It is Better Hearing Month, and Dr. Gervais stopped by Good Morning Northland Wednesday to talk about why ear health is so important.

The Hearing Wellness Center wants to help those who are looking to improve their hearing. They are offering two seminars this month. One is called "Beyond the Hype," which focuses on finding the right hearing technology, Dr. Gervais said. The other is "Are Your Ears Ringing?" That one is about tinnitus.

"Beyond the Hype" is on May 9th. "Are Your Ears Ringing?" is on May 23rd. Both are held at Valentini's conference room in Duluth. To register, call the Hearing Wellness Center at (218) 623-1045.
