NIDCD’s First TwitterChat
To help mark our 25th anniversary, the NIDCD, joined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH/CDC), held a TwitterChat on noise-induced hearing loss and actions people can take to protect their hearing health. The chat—the NIDCD's first—took place on November 19, and generated robust interest across the Twittersphere and among allied groups. The chat was led by Gordon Hughes, M.D., NIDCD Program Director for Clinical Trials, and Rick Davis, Ph.D., Co-Team Leader of the Hearing Loss Prevention Team at NIOSH. Users followed the conversation using the hashtag #NIDCDchat. If you missed the chat, read the archive here. Be sure to follow us on Twitter at @NIDCD to stay apprised of research news and future chat opportunities.
