“Ear and Hearing Care for all – Let’s make it reality” this is the motto from the World Health Organization (WHO) for World Hearing Day today Friday, March 3, 2023! The Hear Here Alabama Project continues to make this motto a reality for rural communities in the state of Alabama. In America today, hearing loss affects 48 million people, or 1 in 7 Americans.
The Hear Here Alabama Project has made advancement in the 2023 year, beginning the very first round of the over-the-counter hearing aid clinical trial in January. This milestone is one step forward to making hearing healthcare a reality for rural Alabama communities! Follow along here on the blog for future updates and progress as we work to make this motto a reality and join us today in celebrating World Hearing Day!
