Title: Sensaphonics Hearing Care for the Music Industry

Description:

Sensaphonics is a musicians’ hearing clinic and in-ear monitor company located in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Since 1985, we have worked with tens of thousands of musicians and music industry personnel to prevent music-induced hearing injury and promote hearing wellness within the music industry. This year for World Hearing Day, we asked our musician patients to post to their social media accounts about why hearing health matters to them. They tagged both Sensaphonics and the World Health Organization and used accompanying hashtags. We then reposted their messages to our own social media accounts. Additionally, a video message from Sensaphonics President, Dr. Michael Santucci, was circulated to our database of 55,000 musicians and audiologists around the world. The message included information about the WHO’s World Hearing Day, the Make Listening Safe initiative, and three practical tips for enjoying music safely.
