Supply lists, school clothes, physicals – it’s all part of back to school time. But there may be an important item not on your list to get your children classroom ready.
We celebrate World Hearing Day every year on March 3rd. Its purpose is to raise awareness about hearing loss and promote ear and hearing care around the world. This year's theme is "Hear the future." The hope is to draw attention to the expected increase in the number of people with hearing loss across the world over the upcoming years.
