Better Hearing Institute Joins HHS, Office on Women's Health in Promoting National Women's Health Week and Hearing Health
Date:4/28/2009

th annual National Women's Health Week kicks off on Mother's Day, May 10, and BHI is encouraging women across America to take part. National Women's Health Week is a weeklong health observance coordinated by the OWH and is dedicated to educating women about steps they can take to improve their health, reduce their risk for many diseases, and live longer, healthier, and happier lives.

BHI is encouraging hearing health professionals across the country to join OWH in celebrating National Women's Health Week by organizing hearing screenings in their communities; hosting health fairs; disseminating women's health information; reaching out to the media in their local communities; and publicizing National Women's Health Week in their practices and communities. For a list of National Women's Health Week events around the country, people can visit http://www.womenshealth.gov/whw.

"Despite the far-reaching impact hearing loss has on so many aspects of a woman's life, many who are already aware that their hearing has deteriorated are reluctant to seek help," Kochkin continues. "Unfortunately, too many wait years, even decades, before getting treatment, becoming more and more disconnected as time goes by. We hope that by joining with the HHS Office of Women's Health to promote National Women's Health Week we can help women take appropriate steps to care for their health--including their hearing health. We hope our efforts make a difference."

Founded in 1973, The Better Hearing Institute (BHI) conducts research and engages in hearing health education with the goal of helping people with hearing loss to benefit from proper treatment. To receive a free copy of BHI's 28 page booklet "Your Guide to Better Hearing," visit its website at
