Audiology Awareness Month

Audiology Awareness Month
By Christina Goebel

Audiology Awareness Month is celebrated during October. Audiologists are health care professionals who evaluate hearing loss.

The American Academy of Audiology has created downloadable documents related hearing loss (http://www.audiology.org/publications-resources/consumer-information/fact-sheets ), including “Assistive Listening Devices” and “Age-Related Hearing Loss.”

Not sure if you have hearing loss? Try the academy’s “Hearing Health Quick Test” (http://audiology-web.s3.amazonaws.com/migrated/Fact%20Sheets%20-%20Quick%20Test.pdf_53998b2f4e9c58.60227146.pdf ).

The academy has also created PowerPoint for various audiences, including adults, different school levels, and physicians (http://www.audiology.org/public-awareness/powerpoint-presentations ).
