The 15th International Noise Awareness Day is April 28th, and it's once again attracting support from around the globe. Organizations diverse as the Arab Ship Building and Repair Company of Bahrain, the Israeli Ministry of Education, and the Brazilian Acoustical Society (SOBRAC) will be taking an active role in educating people about the dangers of noise and the importance of hearing protection. The Center for Hearing and Communication is where it all began 14 years ago, and we commend all of this year's participants and invite you to share your stories with us. Use the Contact Us feature at the top right of our home page.
