Better Hearing & Speech Month 2015

Spring is here, and soon it will be Better Hearing & Speech Month in May.

Over the course of the next several weeks, the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) will be sending you information on hearing health that you can share in your practice, local community, and through social media.

To help get you started, we've answered the ever-important question: “Why is it better to treat hearing loss sooner rather than later?”

This latest post in the “Questions & Answers” section of our website explains seven general health and cognitive reasons why it is so important to recognize and address hearing loss as soon as possible.

We encourage you to adapt and use this information in your practice, on social media, with your local newspapers and radio stations—but especially with primary care medical practices and other healthcare access points in your local community. 

Just go to the bottom-right of our homepage at, or link directly toQ&A.

And remember, as we get closer to Better Hearing & Speech Month, you’ll be seeing even more information from us that you can use.

Thank you for all your do to help raise awareness of the importance of hearing health!


We invite you to follow BHI on Twitter @better_hearing, and on Facebook at
