Solving the Hearing Issues of 38 million Americans

I am raising money to finish research, write and publish a book by June 2021 with the working title of:   So,  Let's Fix America's Hearing Problems.  

I have worked in the hearing aids and healthcare industry for years, conducting research and helping people find hearing professionals with the expertise to make hearing aids work as advertised.   This has led me to discover why the majority of the 38 million Americans with hearing loss don't have hearing aids or don't use the ones they have.  I've also learned how this is increasing their risk of dementia (and other serious medical issues) by up to 500%.  Equally important, it has led me to discover how Medicare and our hearing healthcare system is failing not only the people with hearing loss, but all their loved ones as well.     

The book has two goals.  One is to give up-to-date information on how everyone can avoid the problems in the industry, and get hearing aids that work as advertised.  The second is to influence US policy-makers by showing them how to correct the problems quickly and cost effectively.  In particular, the book will provide data showing how Medicare/Medicaid can save money by covering hearing aids and high quality hearing healthcare instead of the $20,000/month expense of dementia care at a person's end-of-life.
