Event Description:

We had an online social media post and flyers distributed throughout the hospital facilities. Participants filled a brief medical history form addressing hearing difficulties and it’s self-perception. The hearing screening continued with otoscopy and an audiogram. At the end of it, participants were given a flyer with WHO’s key messages for World Hearing Day 2022 and any other questions about hearing protection and World Hearing Day were answered in the best way possible.
