Another Year of Football, Another Win for Hearing Health: EarQ Tackles Hearing Loss at Annual NFLPA Convention
Date:4/1/2017

From March 18-20, representatives from EarQ attended the 2017 NFLPA Convention at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona. At this annual event, players from across the country received screenings, hearing aid fittings, and hearing health education from EarQ representatives.

EarQ and the NFL Players Association's Professional Athletes Foundation tackle the issue of hearing health at regional player events year-round. As the third most prevalent health condition, hearing loss is a concern for more than 48 million Americans. The partnership has been active in addressing this issue in professional football players since 2011. One aim of this relationship is to spread awareness about hearing health and provide solutions to athletes now and in the future.

“With influential advocates like former professional athletes behind the hearing loss awareness movement, we are confident that we can make a difference,” says Ed Keller, President of EarQ.

In addition to spreading awareness, EarQ and the NFLPA are also conducting a research study on the prevalence of hearing loss in pro athletes. EarQ will be sharing the results of this study at booth 601 at AudiologyNOW!—the largest trade show in the industry.
