She was quoted in a Cision PR Newswire article regarding a study on how hearing health contributes to relationship health, and overall well-being.
“People with hearing loss lack some important opportunities for human contact,” said Gail B. Brenner, AuD., Hearing Technology Associates LLC, Philadelphia, PA. “The consequences of this isolation can be the development of depression and increased anxiety, but also increasing mistrust of others. While the tendency for depression among people with untreated hearing loss is significantly higher, differences between people who use hearing aids and people who have no hearing loss are marginal. This shows that a hearing aid can support the prevention of depression for people who experience hearing difficulties.”
In 1993, Dr. Brenner established the Tinnitus & Sound Sensitivity Treatment Center of Philadelphia, PC due to the growing need for the evaluation and management of Tinnitus (ear/head noises) and for issues related to decreased tolerance to sound (DST).
