FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Nov 1, 2007
H.E.A.R. is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing hearing loss
and tinnitus in musicians, music fans, and music industry workers. Since
1988, we've raised awareness of the dangers of excessive sound levels;
we've distributed earplugs to many thousands of people annually; our
volunteers have tested the hearing of music industry workers; and we've
trained educators on hearing protection. We've accomplished this with the
support of the music industry, musicians, audiologists, physicians, hearing
health organizations, health manufacturers and individual donors.
Our H.E.A.R. Partners ™ Program is a national network of hearing
professionals who support our mission. We've delivered vital information on
hearing loss and tinnitus to over a million people through
www.HearNet.com, public service campaigns, and
educational programs. For a free online hearing test, or to find a H.E.A.R. Partner audiologist near you, please visit www.HearNet.com.
