October is National Audiology Awareness Month, according to a news release from the Hearing Specialists of DuPage.

Thirty-six million Americans have hearing loss, according to the release, and one in three of those developed it due to exposure to loud noises. The Hearing Specialists of DuPage encourage residents who are experiencing some difficulty hearing – including having trouble distinguishing conversations in a noisy environment, having a constant ringing in one's ears or diminished hearing capabilities – to visit an audiologist.

For more information on screenings or on audiology and hearing loss, call 630-580-5777 or visit the group's website at thehearingspecialists.com
