World Hearing Day takes place every year on March 3. This day is dedicated to raising awareness on how to prevent deafness and hearing loss and promote ear and hearing care across the world. Healthy hearing means better cognitive health, more effective communication, and stronger relationships.
Tips for Preventing Hearing Loss
Turn the volume down
Wear hearing protection when noise levels exceed 85 decibels (a lawnmower, for example, is 90 decibels)
Don't stick anything in your ears
Schedule annual hearing screening
