Protect Your Hearing Month: Resource Roundup

October is National Protect Your Hearing Month (also known as Audiologist Awareness Month) —and it’s also a great time to get the facts on just what causes hearing loss, as well as what you can do to prevent it.

Hearing loss affects approximately one-third of adults 61 to 70 years of age and more than 80 percent of those older than 85 years, according to the AAFP.

And it’s not just aging adults affected by hearing loss – every generation is showing signs of experiencing hearing loss.

Whether you’re a millennial or baby boomer, a retiree or a factory worker, it’s important to make your hearing health a priority, so you can stay connected to the people, sounds and experiences you love the most.

Explore these six blogs and learn what you can do to protect your hearing health now and in the future.
