Event Description:

Our event was mainly focused on spreading awareness about hearing loss and its prevention through means of social media. We made posters and informative posts on tinnitus, hearing loss prevalence in Estonia, noise-induced hearing loss and on good hearing hygiene and promoted them on Facebook and Instagram. We wanted to get both young people and older adults to interact and be more interested in hearing loss prevention. We received more interest than ever from the general public and we even got asked by several big companies to talk about hearing safety to their workers.
