This tutorial includes important hearing health education facts to benefit new groups at high risk for hearing loss. Participants will acquire a better understanding of the importance of protecting their ears from the ear buds they're blasting their iPods through, the music they're playing, and the shows they're going to see. The discussion will include a preview of the new Exploratorium exhibit “Hearing Health and Risks.”
