Representatives from the House Ear Institute (HEI) and Shure Incorporated will partner to provide free hearing screenings to both attendees and exhibitors at 2003 Winter NAMM at the Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.
The hearing screenings are located at the back of Hall E and available Thursday, January 16, 2003, through Sunday, January 19, 2003, during show hours, and beginning one hour before the show opens to accommodate exhibitors.
A certified OSHA technician conducts the screenings and a licensed audiologist from the House Ear Institute is on hand to counsel participants on their confidential screening results.
The screenings are a part of the House Ear Institute's Sound Partners program and Shure's Bid for Hearing program. Sound Partners raises awareness among audio and music professionals of permanent hearing-loss risks caused by overexposure to excessive sound levels. Shure's Bid for Hearing is the company's hearing-conservation program and corporate cause dedicated to teaching consumers and audio professionals how to enjoy sound responsibly.
