The World Health Organization has selected ASHA to serve on an advisory group charged with developing a WHO initiative on the risk of hearing loss from noisy leisure activities, with an emphasis on the dangers of loud music.
The initiative, “Make Listening Safe,” is designed to inform policy makers and consumers. In asking ASHA to serve on the group, WHO noted ASHA’s “Listen To Your Buds” campaign, which helps spread the word about the risk of hearing loss from regular high-volume use of personal audio technology.
“We are excited by and very appreciative of the opportunity to work with WHO on this intiative,” said Elizabeth McCrea, 2013 ASHA president. “With hearing loss a leading disability worldwide, it’s indeed fitting for the call for safe listening to go out globally.”
