St. John’s Mercy Medical Center
The Audiology Department at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri, celebrated National Audiology Awareness Month by hosting two separate free hearing screenings in the month of October.
During a full day in October, the office was opened to folks who wanted to come in for their free screening or wanted to talk to the audiologists about hearing conservation.
The audiologists also participated in a local health awareness fair for seniors, where the center offered free hearing screenings, displayed hearing conservation posters, and talked with attendees about the importance of protecting your hearing.
Both of these initiatives helped raise awareness of audiology and hearing conservation.
