Introduction to Hearing Health
Annually, you visit your primary care physician for a general check up on your overall health. You may also visit a dentist every 6 months for oral health and an optometrist for your eyes. So, who is taking care of your ears and hearing health?
According to the World Health Organization, over 1.5 billion people globally live with hearing loss and this number is expected to rise to over 2.5 billion by 2050.
Consult a licensed hearing professional near you to check up on your hearing health.
