Employee Health Screening

Hello all,

I have a quick question for anyone that can help.

Hearing Test

I went and had my hearing tested last week, because for the past year or so I've been having a hard time hearing people, especially at meetings or when I'm outside or on a cell phone. And my husband tells me I always have the TV up too loud.

My mother and grandmother had early onset hearing loss so I figured I should check it out.

My hearing test came back within the normal range. ...
