Sounds For Jimmy

Posted: November 12, 2019

Recently Radiolab, media dedicated to making science accessible to broad audiences, received a heartbreaking letter from a listener whose 3 year old son, Jimmy, is slowly losing his hearing. His question to Radiolab: "If you had a limited time left with hearing, what would you want to make sure you heard? What should be on the mixtape?" 

In response, Radiolab would like to make a “mixtape” for Jimmy and they want your help. What sounds should Jimmy experience?

Student Member Dues Increase to $25 to Support Increased Engagement and New Programs

Posted: November 12, 2019

After much consideration, including the involvement and recommendations of student membership and student board representatives, the NHCA Executive Council voted to implement $25 annual dues for 2020 student renewals and new memberships.There were many factors taken into account when making this decision, including our ability to provide excellent service and value to the more than 300 current student members. This past year we launched a new website for improved access to industry and association information for all members, including students. It’s now much easier to navigate to access member-only information such as conference presentation archives, online forums to ask questions and share ideas, and educational resources on hearing loss prevention. Student members also have a unique educational opportunity to attend the NHCA 2020 Annual Conference, February 20-22 in Destin, Florida (at 30% to 75% registration discounts) to meet practitioners, hear innovative ideas and listen to practical experience, all to promote the prevention of noise-induced hearing loss. Student scholarships are available to members to cover conference costs as well as to assist with special projects, theses or dissertations relating to hearing loss prevention/hearing conservation. We will soon be launching a learning management system that will provide for increased opportunities for online learning and continuing education credits. Stay tuned! We invite students to renew, join, engage and take advantage of the many benefits offered through NHCA.

Partner Alert: NEW “Too Loud, Too Long!” Teacher Activity and “How Loud is Too Loud?” Comic Book Available Online

Posted: October 28, 2019

Dear Hearing and Health Partners,

NCEH’s Noise Induced Hearing Loss Program teamed up with BAM! Body and Mind through CDC Healthy Schools to develop a Teacher Activity entitled “Too Loud, Too Long!” to increase students’ knowledge about the permanent hearing damage that can occur from loud sounds and the simple ways to protect their hearing.

NCEH also designed a new comic book entitled “How Loud is Too Loud?” as part of the “Ask a Scientist” comic series to learn about how to prevent noise induced hearing loss in a fun and engaging way. Thanks to an excellent suggestion by one of our partner organizations, the electronic version of our comic book “How Loud is Too Loud” has been edited to better reflect the degree and title of most audiologists providing services to school-aged children.  Ms. Salazar is now referred to as Dr. Salazar. Both resources are available on CDC’s Healthy Schools web page.

For more information, contact John Eichwald at [email protected].

Cordially,

NCEH Noise Induced Hearing Loss Team
