In celebration of International Noise Awareness Day 2013, Starkey Hearing Foundation and MusiCares will offer free hearing screenings for music professionals on April 24 in Santa Monica, Calif.
It's no secret that extended exposure to loud noises can lead to hearing loss. No one knows this better than musicians and others who make their living in live music. While hearing loss can't be reversed, further damage can be prevented. That's why it's important to not only take precautions to protect your hearing, but to have an annual assessment as well.
Qualified participants will receive an individual hearing test to diagnose potential problems, as well as valuable hearing protection recommendations. Screening services will be conducted by audiologists from the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
To schedule an appointment, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800.687.4227
To qualify for a free screening an individual must be a vocalist/musician with at least five years of professional music career history, or at least six commercially released recording credits.
