Hear Well Campaign
The Hear Well campaign has been launched by the Hearing Industries Association (HIA) with resources on the importance of hearing well, and how seeking out a hearing care professional/audiologist can help you to stay well. You can read and share the Hear Well campaign launch press release, and become an advocate yourself with their outreach resources. Additionally, HIA is promoting various ways a consumer may find a hearing care professional/audiologist, including sharing the Academy’s Find An Audiologist directory via its website.
Ensure consumers can find you by updating your Find an Audiologist profile. View instructions on how to here.
