The Noisy Planet team hosted virtual exhibits at community events this past year to educate conference attendees about noise-induced hearing loss. In February, we shared our science-based health resources with hearing conservationists at the virtual National Hearing Conservation Association Annual Conference and, in April, we connected with audiologists at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA 2021 Virtual). The Noisy Planet team also showed children how to protect their hearing at the National Institutes of Health’s virtual Take Your Child to Work Day on April 22. (Noisy Planet is a project of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders at the NIH.) NIDCD staff presented science-based activities from the Noisy Planet teacher toolkit, which offers lessons for students ages 8 through 12 on the importance of protecting their hearing in noisy environments.
