NYC Walk4Hearing

Columbia University Medical Center Otolaryngology

Approximately 48 million Americans have some form of hearing loss

More than 30 million Americans are exposed to dangerous levels of noise in their workplaces
An estimated 1 in 5 American teens experiences some degree of hearing loss
2.3 million Veterans receive either disability compensation for service-connected hearing disabilities or are in treatment for related hearing issues
Hearing loss affects one's ability to communicate every day in different situations - from a dinner conversation at a noisy restaurant, on the phone, to not hearing alarm clocks and smoke alarms. For people with hearing loss, these situations can be become obstacles without the right information and support. HLAA provides the assistance and resources for people with hearing loss and their families to learn how to adjust to living with hearing loss.

Why Walk?

We walk because hearing loss is a public health issue third in line after heart disease and arthritis.

The Department of Otolaryngology at Columbia University Medical Center/Columbia Doctors is dedicated to increasing public awareness and management of hearing loss as well as working with patients to explore their treatment options.

Visit our Department website at: and to learn more about your hearing health.
