“It’s Loud Out There: Hearing Health across the Lifespan”
Tuesday, June 20, 2017
1:00 p.m. ET

The webcast links below are only active during the date and time of the session, but all sessions are archived for future viewing.

The world is on the verge of a hearing loss epidemic. Some 360 million people live with disabling hearing loss worldwide and that number is growing. Young and older people are at risk. One in three older adults has hearing loss, and 1.1 billion young people are at risk for hearing loss around the world. Loud noises can cause permanent hearing loss. In addition to loud noises, the daily sounds of life play a role in the decline of the world’s hearing health: lawn mowers, recreational vehicles, power tools, and music are some of the culprits. Other causes of hearing loss include aging, and certain pharmaceuticals.
