Scientists have been studying how to regrow damaged hair cells to restore hearing. Replacing hair cells might not be enough—to function properly, new hair cells also need to be organized in a specific way.
This national public education campaign is designed to increase awareness among parents of children ages 8 to 12 about the causes and prevention of noise-induced hearing loss. With this information, parents and other adults can encourage children to adopt healthy hearing habits before and during the time that they develop listening, leisure, and working habits.
