I Can’t Hear You! Stopping the Hidden Hearing Loss Epidemic

Dr. Suhrud Rajguru, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Otolaryngology

Noise is a leading cause of hearing loss, yet most of us have no idea that our exposure everyday sounds -- at sporting events and concerts or from our earbuds – can be damaging our ears. And that cumulative damage may be permanent. Hearing shapes how we interact with the world, and loss of hearing can severely impact us cognitively, socially and physically. Scientists at the University of Miami College of Engineering and at Miller School of Medicine are uncovering clues about hidden hearing loss and are racing to produce solutions that can be implemented across the globe.
