World Hearing Day: March 3
The Academy supports this worldwide awareness initiative created by the World Health Organization (WHO).
In 2019, the theme of this recognition day is the importance of early identification and intervention for hearing loss. Many people live with unidentified hearing loss, often failing to realize that they are missing out on certain sounds and words. Checking one’s hearing would be the first step toward addressing the issue.
The Academy has created some visual resources and press release information that you can use to help show your support for this day and to raise awareness of hearing health care.
