Starkey Shares Insight on Hearing Loss Impact and Prevention at Congressional Breakfast

Barry Freeman, Ph.D., Senior Director of Education and Audiology at Starkey Laboratories, Inc., recently spoke to more than 100 people at a breakfast briefing for The Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation in Washington, DC. He addressed the impact shooting sports can have on sportsmen's hearing health and how proper hearing protection can minimize or eliminate the negative impact of firearm noise.

"Loud noises, like those from firearms, can cause damage to hearing over time," said Freeman. "For sportsmen, protection can range from simple earplugs to advanced electronic protective devices. And the benefits of protecting your hearing are priceless."

The event, sponsored by the Hearing Industries Association, was attended by members of congress, legislative directors of congressional offices, as well as directors of professional associations in the hearing industry.
