Organization: Earbus Foundation of WA

Project title: Strong ears, Deadly Future

Regions: Australia

Outline of the event:

Using a bespoke poster with key WHO/WHD messaging around ear health, Earbus clinicians will engage with school-aged Aboriginal and at-risk children in regional and remote communities to improve health literacy. We will invite children to write their name on a sticker of an ear and place it on the message they most identify with. The goal is that at the end of the activity, the kids share the messaging with their class and lead a colouring-in activity of the poster, with key messages included, thereby spreading awareness of ear and hearing care for all.
