Reaching out to media regarding hearing loss prevention, audiology awareness, and the importance of seeing an audiologist has been an exciting and eye-opening experience for our communications firm. Since we began working with the Academy to assist with media relations a few months ago, we have called on media across the country to pitch stories on hearing loss prevention and audiology. Just over the past few months, it has been an amazing and educational task.

July 4, 1777, just one year after the Declaration of Independence had been approved and read publicly, our young nation paraded the streets and celebrated our independence by lighting bonfires, chiming bells, and setting off fireworks. Since then, fireworks have become the hallmark of our modern Fourth of July festivities. Whether you are an active participant or simply a bystander, fireworks explode throughout every town in the United States on this celebratory day. You might be able to run from them, but you definitely cannot hide, as the sound they produce can be heard from miles away.
