New Programs for Hearing Loss at the US Center for Disease Control (CDC)
The CDC is now broadening their long standing effort to control occupational noise exposure with a cross-agency effort to initiate and coordinate programmatic activities regarding non-occupational hearing loss.
According to Robin Ikeda, MD, MPH, Deputy Director, Non-communicable Disease, Injury, and Environmental Health at the CDC, current activities include raising awareness of the issue and facilitating public health action for hearing loss.
