October is National Audiology Awareness Month (AAM) and we’re proud to be your partner in this life-changing profession. You play a vital role in hearing health and it matters.
In response to the growing number of Americans suffering from hearing loss, the American Academy of Audiology launched National Audiology Awareness Month in hopes to bring awareness to the early signs of hearing loss.
