NIDCD's Noisy Planet Campaign
Noisy Planet at the Dangerous Decibels Conference
In October, the NIDCD participated in a two-day conference jointly hosted by 3M and Dangerous Decibels. Topics of the event—Innovations in Noise-Induced Hearing Loss and Tinnitus Prevention in Kids—ranged from state-of-the-art interventions and outreach strategies for effective prevention to the impacts of noise on health and behavior. Members of the NIDCD's It’s a Noisy Planet. Protect Their Hearing® team gave a presentation on the campaign to share our successes, while also highlighting lessons learned from the recent evaluation of the campaign. We also participated in a poster session that outlined campaign insights on reaching the parents of preteens with the message of preventing noise-induced hearing loss.
