PAHO invites to this interactive webinar to raise awareness about hearing loss among young people in the Americas.

Specialists from PAHO and WHO will discuss the challenges faced by hearing-impaired adolescents. The main risk factors that are correlated to hearing loss are those related to the behavior of the adolescents; including listening to loud music and using lawn and power tools with no hearing protection. A group of young people will also present their experiences during the webinar.
