CDC co-sponsored recent report on Hearing Health Care for Adults: Priorities for Improving Access and Affordability
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine recently released a vital public health consensus report, Hearing Health Care for Adults: Priorities for Improving Access and Affordability including 12 recommendations for various agencies and organizations, several of which specifically name CDC. Along with our colleagues at NIH’s National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, Institute on Aging, and other agencies and organizations, NCBDDD’s Division of Human Development and Disability co-sponsored the report. As announced in NIH’s press release, this “study provides a thorough analysis of the state of hearing health care for adults in the United States and describes meaningful approaches to reducing the impact of hearing loss among adults by making hearing health care more accessible and affordable.”
The entire report and supporting materials (report brief, recommendations, guide for individuals and families, and guide for hearing health care professionals) are available to download at www.nas.edu/hearing.
