Title: Ear and hearing care awareness campaign for students on campus


To commemorate Word Hearing Day, and in line with the theme “Ear and Hearing Care for All! Let’s make it a reality,” the Audiology Division of the Department of Speech-Pathology and Audiology held an awareness campaign on its campuses. Third year audiology students gathered on the university’s main steps and central piazza and addressed staff and students on the importance of ear and hearing health. Thereafter, the students paraded around two of the university’s campuses, carrying balloons and placards promoting the theme of the day and the WHO’s WHD campaign hashtags. Students shared information on ear and hearing care and safe listening to Wits staff and students and distributed pamphlets in English, SeTswana, and isiZulu. The pamphlets and promotional activity developed by the WHO for WHD2023 were included in the information shared by the students and students addressed queries and concerns about ear and hearing health during their interactions.
