October is National Protect Your Hearing Month and our friends at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Environmental Health have updated their information on noise and hearing loss.

Please share this important information with everyone you know.

Remember: If a noise sounds loud, it’s too loud, and your hearing is at risk.

Turn down the volume, leave the noisy environment, or insert your earplugs.
