Hearing loss is not an isolated incident. According to Audiology Today Magazine, the “World Health Organization (WHO) reports that over five percent of the world’s population has a disabling hearing loss.”

It is often up to audiologists, then, to reach out to the community and inspire those with hearing loss. Hearing loss is a very personal problem, and it’s essential that those afflicted with a hearing disorder realize they’re not alone.

How to get involved?

For an audiologist, participating in local programs or health fairs (like REM does with their Kiosk program) can show the members of your area that there are options available. For patients motivated to similarly reach out, the Hearing Loss Association of America has a list of potential activities and ideas.

One that caught our eye: “Help educate people about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by introducing the need for assistive listening systems in the community.”

The more you spread the news of hearing loss, the more people will hear.
