Dr. Darrow has now joined the ranks of successful authors who care about your physical and mental health as you age. He always says, “Aging is inevitable, but decline is optional.”Stop Living in Isolation is set to be a game changer as those affected by hearing loss learn the correlation between it and the mind-robbing diseases of dementia, depression, social isolation and a sedentary lifestyle. Dr. Darrow, between his numerous years of continuing education, practice in his field and research, is determined to reveal the science to maintaining independence and increasing social engagement by bettering your hearing. His passion, training and determination have led him to teach you about the proven benefits of NeuroTechnology.

Updated (6/6/18 10:39 am): I forgot to mention the time. (Though, it is stated in the flyer). The presentation is at 7:00 pm on June 7th.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Keith N. Darrow documents ways to reduce the risks of developing dementia and exposes the devastating impacts of hearing loss if left unchecked. He presents a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to better hearing, increasing cognitive function, increasing socialization and maximizing your quality of life. Dr. Darrow offers the value behind NeuroTechnology, which is at the heart of a more comfortable, healthier way of living with the daily challenges of aging and hearing loss. And, he challenges some common myths about aging and dementia in correlation to hearing loss. This book is packed with information for those who want to learn how to live a better, more active, more engaged lifestyle regardless of age.
