Make Some Noise for Hearing Health!
April 27, 2017
Did you know that individuals with healthy hearing are less likely to develop or experience heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, depression and social isolation? Hearing plays a significant role in affecting a person’s mood, overall well-being and everyday life. It is arguably one of the body’s most important senses!
Approximately 52 million Americans have hearing loss, and this staggering number is increasing quickly. In the world, it is estimated that around 360 million men, women and children are affected, and unfortunately, hearing loss is permanent.
What will you do during May Better Hearing and Speech Month to help bring attention to the important issue of hearing health? Education and awareness are critical in helping to prevent and treat hearing loss. Join us and take action by getting involved with the following programs!
