NIDCD's Noisy Planet Campaign

Noisy Planet Community Outreach

It's a Noisy Planet Logo

Noisy Planet presenters from the NIDCD visit schools and community groups in the DC metro area to deliver an interactive and educational 45-minute presentation about how to protect hearing from noise-induced hearing loss, the only kind of hearing loss that is completely preventable. The Noisy Planet team has reached more than 8,000 students since 2010. After a recent visit to South Lake Elementary School in Gaithersburg, Md., third grade teacher Elena Ramos thanked us by writing, “You don’t have any idea how excited our third graders were about your and Mr. Miranda’s presentation. I am sure that they learned a lot and they know, now, how to protect their hearing. All the teachers in our third grade team are very appreciative of your effort to keep our students engaged and well informed.”
