The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) Walk4Hearing increases awareness about hearing loss, helps to eradicate the stigma associated with it and raises funds to provide information and support for people with hearing loss. Since 2006, the Walk4Hearing has raised more than $12 million and has become the largest walk for hearing loss taking place in cities across the United States. 

 

Why Walk?

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

  • 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.

 

Ascent Audiology & Hearing supports this cause by treating individuals with hearing loss every day.  If you, or someone you know, would like to schedule a free consultation, you can reach us at (703) 942-8110. You can also find us at: www.HearingAidDoctors.com
