Hear the future – World Hearing Day 2018

By Saima L Rajasingam, on 3 March 2018

If we don’t take action now, over 900 million people across the globe could be affected by hearing loss by 2050 (World Health Organisation, 2018) …

…which is why, despite the ‘inclement weather’, a team from the UCL Ear Institute spent yesterday in Kings Cross Station, raising awareness on how to protect your hearing, treat hearing loss and support hearing research. To find out more about how we got on (and what exactly Nick Lesica is doing in the above photo), watch this space!

In the meantime, why not try out this quick hearing check from Action on Hearing Loss or take a look at the World Health Organisation’s tips on how to prevent and reduce the impact of hearing loss?
