October is National Hearing Protection Month

In recognition of National Hearing Protection Month the CDC has released a video about hearing protection and a new “Ask a Scientist” comic book series about noise and hearing loss through the BAM! Body and Mind Classroom Resources for Teachers.

These are great resources for the general public and will help to raise awareness about noise exposure, hearing loss, other health effects and how to protect ourselves.

Comic: Ask a Scientist “How loud is too loud?
