The company presented a $10,036 check to the New Jersey AHA, a donation that represents that the success of the 2012 “At the Heart of It ... We Put People First” campaign. During American Heart Month in February, Oticon pledged a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Intiga hearing devices to the AHA as part of the heart and hearing health awareness-building program.
Hundreds of hearing care professionals participated in the month-long campaign, encouraging people in communities across the country to take the first steps toward better health and better hearing with professional consultations and evaluations that can provide life-changing benefits.
Take care of your heart! Recent research indicates prolonged exposure to loud noise damages our hearing as well as our heart. The good news is noise-related health risks are preventable. The best thing you can do is limit your exposure to environments with high noise levels. And, if you’re a hearing aid user, don't forget to use the memory settings on your hearing instrument to adjust volume in a noisy environment or wear ear muffs.
