Reps. Thompson and McKinley Reintroduce Congressional World Hearing Day Resolution

The resolution, H.Res. 147, highlights the critical role hearing ability plays in personal health, relationships, professional success, education, and safety. The resolution also discusses the important role of professional intervention and evaluation through licensed hearing care providers—hearing aid specialists, audiologists, and otolaryngologists, who can recommend and assist with rehabilitation options, which may include medical intervention or the use of assistive hearing technologies like hearing aids.
