Hearing loss is a growing, widespread issue that impacts people of all ages and often carries with it serious implications for one's health, relationships, and overall well-being. Researchers estimate that one in five Americans, and one in three people over age 65, suffer from hearing loss. Impacting over 48 million Americans, hearing loss is the third most common chronic physical condition in the United States. An estimated 360 million people worldwide suffer from some form of hearing loss. Noise-induced hearing loss can be prevented by use of high-fidelity hearing protectors and safe-listening devices.
AuDConnex is a collaborative hearing provider network/buying group of over 300 members with operations in both the United States and Canada.
