ESHC Celebrates BHSM with a Full Month of Events
May is the best month of the year! Founded in 1927 by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), Better Hearing and Speech Month aims to raise awareness about hearing and speech problems. The annual campaign encourages people to take action and seek treatment for a speech or hearing problem.
According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), at least 20 percent of U.S. adults, at some point in their lives, experience significant difficulty in hearing, balance, taste, smell, voice, speech, or language. To raise awareness about these common disorders, ESHC joins other organizations in observing BHSM each May.
EHSC celebrates BHSM with a series of events for our staff and a few special ones for patients, including a student forum with UW Audiology Students and a yoga workshop for our voice patients.
