Did you take the hearing health assessment, and recognize signs of hearing loss?

Have you ever wondered how hearing loss might be affecting your life, or the life of a loved one? Maybe you took the hearing health assessment and wonder how your answers might be indicating signs of hearing loss.

If this is you, see an ear, nose and throat doctor (Otoloyngologist or otologist) or your primary care physician to see if you have hearing loss and to rule out any medical condition(s).

Otolaryngologists (ENT) are physicians trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck. For an otolaryngologist near you, call the American Academy of Otolaryngology at 703.836.4444 or visit AAO-HNS at www.entnet.org.

For more information or for an audiologist near you, call the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) at 800.638.8255 or visit ASHA at www.asha.org; or call the American Academy of Audiology (The Academy) at 800.AAA.2336 or visit them at www.audiology.org.

Already know your hearing health, but want to share the importance with others? Perhaps you’ve already addressed your hearing loss or you took the hearing health assessment and learned that you don’t have signs of hearing loss. If this is you, make sure to share the #MillionEar Challenge with your loved ones online by following steps two and three on this page!
