Provincial Learning Event: Hearing Health for Life

January 16 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

You are invited to join BC CRN’s January online Provincial Learning Event: Hearing Health for Life. (Please be advised that the previous topic for the January Provincial Learning Event “Working with the Designated Agencies” has been deferred to later in the new year due to scheduling challenges with the speaker.)

Hearing loss is a common complaint among older adults.  According to the National Institute on Aging, hearing loss can negatively impact a person’s cognitive health (leading to issues related to concentration and memory), mental health (increasing the likelihood of someone experiencing depression and loneliness), and physical health (leading to an increased risk of falls and other personal safety issues).

Join us for this dynamic webinar and learn about the signs of age-related hearing loss and how to best support those who are experiencing the impacts of hearing loss.  Let’s connect and discuss hearing health for life!

Grace Shyng, MSc Aud(C) RAUD RHIP
Co-founder and Director of Audiology of Network Hearing

I obtained my Master of Science in Audiology from the University of British Columbia in 1995. Upon graduation, I was hired as a staff audiologist for a Vancouver-based nonprofit hearing clinic where I had completed one of my externships. Over the subsequent 27 years, I worked as a staff Audiologist, then Head of Audiology and then as Interim Executive Director (ED) from 2018 to 2020. During this period as ED, I successfully led a capital project where we built the most accessible building in Canada, as awarded by the Rick Hansen Foundation. From 2021 onwards, I have been working for a private practice in Surrey, as well as for UBC, where I developed and coordinated a very successful pilot student-led hearing clinic.

My professional areas of interest include hearing health and aging, tinnitus management, auditory processing, amplification and communication accessibility in work and public spaces. Over the past couple of years, I have served on several committees for Speech Audiology Canada, UBC School of Audiology and Speech Sciences, and the College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals.

On a personal note, I was born and raised in East Vancouver, so I’m a true native Vancouverite. (As a kid, I would sit on my back porch on hot summer nights watching the lit cabin of the PNE Spiro Tower go up and down!). I’m now a longtime resident of the Tricities, where I live with my husband, two grown-up kids and our dog. I enjoy creative writing, hiking, and travelling. I’m ecstatic to be starting this new clinic with Sandra, my longtime friend and colleague, and look forward to welcoming everyone into our wonderful new modern space. After several decades commuting to Vancouver, I’m over the moon that I get to live and work in beautiful PoCo and provide quality hearing health services to our clients from the Tricities and beyond!

Fun fact: In the summers of 1998 and 1999, I travelled to Zimbabwe with a Rotary International Hearing Health Care team. We provided audiology services across the country, and trained local professionals on hearing health service delivery.
