This month’s audio postcard couldn’t come any farther from home… take a listen to a Martian soundscape. This audio file was recorded by NASA’s Perseverance Rover on February 20. For extra fun, watch a video of the Rover landing on the Mars surface a few days earlier.

NHCASF Seeking Volunteers

Posted: February 3, 2021

The National Hearing Conservation Scholarship Foundation (NHCASF) is seeking new officers to replace those completing their three-year term in February 2021.

The mission of the NHCASF is to manage endowments and donations, and award scholarships to graduate students focusing on applied/practical studies in hearing loss prevention/hearing conservation at internationally accredited institutions.

The following 3-year positions are available soon:

Secretary: The Secretary documents minutes of meetings and distributes minutes to the Board for input, corrections, and additions prior to final approval.
Director: Directors provide input on Board matters and may be asked to take on additional duties at the discretion of the President.

Serving on the Foundation Board of Directors is an excellent opportunity to foster students into the world of hearing loss prevention/hearing conservation and also to help promote membership in NHCA.

Any voting NHCA member interested in applying for either of these positions should contact…

Congratulations 2021 Poetry Contest Winner

Posted: February 3, 2021

We are pleased to congratulate NHCA’s President, Theresa Schulz, for contributing the winning poem for NHCA’s recent Ear-Cleaning Poetry Contest. Association members were asked to find or create your favorite poems with an explicit focus on sounds and the soundscape. The goal is to elevate our hearing awareness. Please enjoy this original haiku by Theresa Schulz:

Hummingbird chitter
Delights the sense of hearing.
Chitter, chitter, hum.
