Today marks the first day of Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM), a month dedicated to the awareness of hearing and speech disorders along with the professions that help treat the disorder. Did you know that 1 in 10 families in the Puget Sound area are affected by a communication disorder; totaling over 42 million Americans nationwide.
Since 1979, ESHC has joined audiologists and speech-language pathologists throughout the nation in the celebration of Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM), a month dedicated to the awareness of speech, language and hearing disorders. This May, we look forward to raising awareness throughout the Puget Sound area with events that range from 5K runs to rockin’ concerts. At every event our knowledgeable doctors, clinicians and staff will be giving back to the community, answering questions, and handing out earplugs – to promote safe listening and speech awareness.
We hope to see each and every one of you during the month-long BHSM celebration jam packed with community outreach!
