Exciting Changes at NHCA!

The National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) has made some significant updates to better serve our members. The NHCA logo has been refreshed to a more modern look and the NHCA tagline has changed to better align with who we are. Our new tagline is: Hear for a Lifetime. Our Website has also been updated – both to be more visually pleasing and more user friendly. Many more web updates are coming, so please check back often! Exclusively for our members, our Spectrum Newsletter also has a new look and more technical content. Please be sure to check our next issue at the end of October.

Find Your Quiet Place Challenge

NHCA is excited to partner again with SoundPrint, a hearing health app, to promote hearing health awareness. During the month of October, National Audiology Awareness Month, 30+ prominent hearing health organizations will participate in the 2022 FYQP Challenge, collecting 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.

Last Chance to Register for the UKHCA Conference: Listen Up

Listen Up will focus on opportunities for prevention of noise-induced harm and prevention of sound-induced harm, looking beyond the workplace. Additional details can be found here.
