Find Your Quiet Place (FYQP) Challenge

NHCA is excited to partner again with SoundPrint, a hearing health app, to promote hearing health awareness. During the month of October, 30+ prominent hearing health organizations will participate in the 2022 FYQP Challenge to collect sound level data using the SoundPrint App. The goal is to measure and submit as many sound levels as possible from local venues (e.g., restaurants, parks, shops, offices, theaters, cafes). Prizes will be awarded to the most dedicated participants. The sound measurements will facilitate advocacy for safe noise levels and help communities find quieter places.

Visit the FYQP webpage to download the app, register for the Challenge, get the details on prizes and more.
