Starkey Hearing Foundation's 'Don't Say What?' Program

To kick-off Better Hearing Month, the Starkey Hearing Foundation, a world leader in promoting hearing health awareness, will nationally promote its new "Don't Say What?" initiative beginning Friday, May 4, in USA Today. Starkey is partnering with platinum country recording artist and three-time Grammy winner Trisha Yearwood and leading audiologist Gyl Kasewurm, Au.D., to help spread the "Don't Say What?" message and educate consumers about how to protect their hearing.

Through the "Don't Say What?" program, the Starkey Hearing Foundation aims to bring one of the audiology community's most critical issues to the forefront of consumer awareness by educating them about the effects of misuse of popular electronic devices such as MP3 players, Bluetooth headsets and cell phones. The campaign will also address how live noise, such as amplified music at concerts and loud machinery used for road work, can impair hearing.

"Don't Say What?" is part of the Starkey Hearing Foundation's overall goal of educating the world about hearing health. The Starkey Hearing Foundation will continue its partnership with USA Today through a nationwide school program to offer information about the causes of hearing loss and steps consumers can take to protect their ears. The educational program will reach 30,000 elementary, middle and high school classrooms and 400 universities across the country.
