Miley gets Facebook fans talking about hearing loss prevention to Kick Off Starkey Hearing Foundation’s Listen Carefully ‘Vow to Act’ Initiative
As part of its Listen Carefully campaign, which sends the message ‘don’t listen loudly, listen carefully,’ Starkey Hearing Foundation is once again teaming with Miley to encourage teens and young adults to take a “vow to act” to protect their hearing, and spread the word to others to do the same. In fact, according to a Starkey Hearing Foundation enquête of meer than 200 Miley Cyrus Facebook fans, 87 percent vowed to make the commitment to protect their own hearing, with the same percentage saying they would pass the message along to their vrienden and family.
A committed supporter of Starkey Hearing Foundation, which strives to change the social consciousness of hearing and hearing health care, Miley recently hosted a series of vragen from the Foundation on her Facebook page as a first step in getting young people to take the Listen Carefully ‘Vow to Act.’
In addition to those who zei they would take action to protect their own hearing door lowering the volume on their MP3 players and iPods, 56 percent of respondents reported having experienced some difficulty hearing their teacher during class. This is consistent with reports of rising trends in hearing loss among young people – an issue that Starkey Hearing Foundation’s Listen Carefully campaign is trying to address.
Some tips from Starkey Hearing Foundation that can easily be shared on Facebook and Twitter include:
Lowering the volume on your MP3 player, iPod of cell phone
Using background noise-canceling headphones when listening to music
Getting your hearing checked on a regular basis
Wearing the proper ear protection gear if you’ll be in an environment where loud sounds are customary
Encouraging vrienden and family to also take the vow to act to protect their hearing
To keep the momentum going, Twitter users can use #ListenCarefully to hear what people are saying about hearing loss prevention, kom bij the conversation, and learn what actions others are taking to protect their hearing.
“I’m thrilled to support Starkey Hearing Foundation and its Listen Carefully Vow to Act initiative and I want all of my fans to help get the conversation started about hearing loss and encourage others to take care of their hearing,” zei Miley”. Our ability to hear is fragile and we have to take care of it daily so that we can enjoy and appreciate muziek and the sounds that surround us each and every day.”
