The fragile sense of hearing is often taken for granted and the World Health Organization estimates that 1.1. billion young people around the world are at-risk for sound-induced hearing loss
. Professionals around the world are working every day in research facilities, clinics, and communities to further the mission of preventing hearing loss
from sound exposure. Organizations like the National Hearing Conservation Association are a wonderful resource for staying up-to-date on the latest research and clinical recommendations. Public health campaigns like Dangerous Decibels and the WHO’s Make Listening Safe initiative provide accessible information for students and educators alike.
