Hearing Action Week 2012 launched today with an action-packed series of events and initiatives. This year the campaign is focused on encouraging people to take action on their hearing loss. The week kicks off with a media launch with guest of honour, legendary broadcaster Gay Byrne. Gay has entertained us for many decades on radio and TV and is a fitting ambassador for the Hearing Action Week campaign.
Two state-of-the-art mobile hearing clinics will kick off a nationwide tour from Dublin and Belfast, visiting many destinations and providing free hearing screenings. In the picture above TV and radio presenter Gay Byrne and Hidden Hearing’s Medical Advisor Dr. Nina Byrnes with Stephen Leddy, Managing Director Hidden Hearing launched Hearing Action Week – a national awareness campaign encouraging people to take action on their hearing loss conducted by Hidden Hearing in association with the Irish Deaf Society. Gay Byrne, who recently took action on his own hearing loss, is encouraging people to ‘Change the Record’ from awareness to action, highlighting that some people delay addressing the issue for up to 15 years.
