National Men’s Health Month

The Better Hearing Institute (BHI) is promoting National Men’s Health Month by raising awareness of the link between hearing loss and a man’s overall wellbeing.

Jacksonville Hearing and Balance Institute along with the BHI is urging men across America to get their hearing checked. According to the BHI, more than half of the 34 million people with hearing loss in the United States are male.

Familes are encouraged to support the men in their lives by becoming more aware of preventable health problems. The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to promote early detection and treatment of disease or injury among men and boys. Resources are available at Jacksonville Hearing and Balance Institute to test for hearing loss and implement comprehensive treatment plans.

The whole month of June is National Men’s Health Month, so encourage the men in your life to consider how their hearing health is linked to other aspects of their lives. Hearing aids can benefit the majority of men with hearing loss, and improve the quality of their lives and relationships.
