Public Awareness

Public awareness, focused on healthy hearing, hearing loss prevention, and the audiology profession, is an important component of the Foundation’s mission. Over the past few years, the Foundation has implemented a number of programs aimed at providing tools, resources, and information for consumers.

Turn It to the Left®- Recognizing that the risk of permanent hearing loss from noise exposure is very real for individuals of all ages, the Academy and Foundation have undertaken a campaign to raise public awareness about the dangers of exposure to high-level sound and to raise funds in support of noise-induced hearing loss research. Thousands of children have learned to take the volume control and “turn it to the left” by listening to the Turn It to the Left educational rap by Ben Jackson of Rhythm, Rhyme, Results. Additional educational tools for students, parents, and teachers are available at turnittotheleft.com.
