1.1 billion people at risk of hearing loss- WHO highlights serious threat posed by exposure to recreational noise
27 February 2015 | Geneva – Some 1.1 billion teenagers and young adults are at risk of hearing loss due to the unsafe use of personal audio devices, including smartphones, and exposure to damaging levels of sound at noisy entertainment venues such as nightclubs, bars and sporting events, according to World Health Organization. Hearing loss has potentially devastating consequences for physical and mental health, education and employment.
The nature of our work is first and foremost grassroots. H.E.A.R. board is made up of musicians, physicians and caring individuals driven by their love of music and passion for hearing conservation. Through our Plugs In the Clubs Initiative and Save Your Ears for Music Campaign we have been able to spark changes not only in San Francisco but we see it spreading to more cities where people enjoy music. Save Your Ears For Music is all about creating a cultural shift that befits increased hearing conservation efforts in our institutions and as individuals. H.E.A.R. knows that while it’s not cool to acknowledge the connection between music enjoyment and hearing damage, it’s way less cool to no longer be able to enjoy music. With your help we hope to expand our mission
H.E.A.R. programs include: Listen-Smart film and programs for students and educators; Plugs In The Clubs Initiative- Save Your Ears for Music Campaign; and H.E.A.R.'s nonprofit Music Hearing Services providing ready-fit high fidelity hearing protection, custom ear impressions for Concert/Musicians earplugs and custom In Ear Monitors (CIEM). www.hearnet.com
