Led by volunteer professionals, Healthy Hearing provides tests for cerumen (ear wax) and otoacoustic emissions (overall hearing). This virtual Healthy Athletes Education Session – Healthy Hearing will be on December 3, at 6:30 p.m. PT.
The amount of hearing loss among Special Olympics athletes is much greater than amongst the general population, as most hearing problems are previously undetected or un-served.
Athletes who require followup services are referred to local professionals.
