We have entered the month of May! How is this possible? 😳 Time sure does fly when you are having fun! May is Better Hearing & Speech month! 🗣👂🏼

So, lets continue on with the fun and learn about the role of an audiologist and how you can protect your hearing 🙌🏼

Maggie O'Brien, the Mizzou NSSLHA chapter president gave us some pointers on how to protect our hearing. Check it out ⬇️

Approximately 48 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss. It is very important to take care of your hearing by using hearing protection. Damage to the auditory system can be irreparable. Here are some tips on how to protect your hearing throughout day to day life:

•Turn the volume down when using earphones or driving in the car.
•Use earplugs when exposed to loud noise.
•Do not use q-tips in your ears.
• If you are having hearing issues make sure to talk to an audiologist as soon as possible.

Now, Morgan Gabriele, from Maryville University provided us with a great visual to help breakdown various roles of an audiologist. Check it out ⬇️
