May Is Better Hearing and Speech Month
April 26, 2002
For 75 years, May has been designated as a time to raise public understanding about hearing, and voice, speech, and language disorders, and recognize speech and hearing professionals for the important work they do. Once again, Congress invites all Americans to join them in celebrating Better Hearing and Speech Month. This year’s celebration applauds the 41 states that are now conducting hearing screenings for newborns and urges us all to have our hearing checked periodically and protect our ears against damaging noise.
