Journal Articles on Noise Induced Hearing Loss

In March 2008, the journal Seminars in Hearing published a collection of articles based on presentations given at the conference “Noise-Induced Hearing Loss in Children at Work and Play” held in October 2006.

These articles provide an overview of conference topics and themes, including sources of hazardous sounds; risks associated with exposure to loud sounds; public policy considerations; health behavior/communication theories; and strategies, programs, and resources that can be used to educate children about NIHL. The conference was sponsored by a grant from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health with additional support provided by the National Hearing Conservation Association, the University of Northern Colorado, Marion Downs Hearing Center, Oregon Health & Science University, and the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
