Noisy Planet at the NASN Conference

at the NASN conference.
In June, NIDCD staff met school nurses from across the country at the 45th annual National Association of School Nurses (NASN) conference in Florida. NASN is a partner of the It’s a Noisy Planet! Protect Their Hearing® campaign. School nurses play an important role in screening children for hearing loss and act as an important link between students, parents, and teachers in the community. Attendees stopped by the Noisy Planet booth to spin a wheel that tested their knowledge about noise-induced hearing loss, to browse our publications, and to sign up for the monthly Noisy Planet E-Bulletin. NIDCD Noisy Planet team member Phalla Keng answered questions about the campaign and materials.
