October is National Protect Your Hearing Month.

Did you know that 4 out of 5 American adults never or rarely wear hearing protection in loud settings? This includes entertainment venues and sporting events, which can reach levels upwards of 90-100 dB.

Repeated exposure to sound levels of 85 dB for more than 8 hours a day can result in noise-induced hearing loss.

The Marion Downs Center is dedicated to hearing conservation through our on-site testing program and clinical services. If you are concerned about hearing loss, a hearing evaluation carried out by a professional audiologist should be your first step! The Marion Downs Center provides audiology services and custom ear plug fittings.
