PLYMOUTH, Minnesota — Did you know men are more likely to suffer from a hearing impairment than women? 

Health experts say men are more at risk for hearing loss than women largely due to occupational and lifestyle factors.

June 10 is the start of “Men’s Health Week." And this Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16, you can show dad you really care by making sure he knows the causes and effects of hearing loss. 

Dr. Dave Fabry, an audiologist and Chief Innovation Officer at Starkey Hearing Technologies, explains how dads can help prevent hearing loss, how you can tell if your loved one needs to visit an audiologist, and how you can talk to him about this very important, sometimes touchy topic.
