Hearing Loss: An Overview

As America ages and we’re bombarded by the noise of modern-day living, hearing loss has become a growing public health concern. Today, it’s the third most common chronic health condition in the United States. Left unaddressed, hearing loss can have a profound effect on people’s lives—from interpersonal communication, to health and quality of life. The good news is that hearing technologies and treatments are becoming more advanced and accessible, offering help and hope for children born with hearing loss and for people who develop hearing loss later in life.
