Amplifon Americas Encourages Hearing Checks During Month of May

May 2, 2019

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2019--Amplifon S.p.A. (“Amplifon” or the “Company”; MTA; Bloomberg ticker: MIL:AMP.MI), global leader in hearing health care solutions and services, encourages all Americans to schedule a hearing check during the month of May, recognized as Better Hearing and Speech Month by the Hearing Industries Association (HIA).

This May, the HIA’s “Preserve Your Passion” campaign seeks to make hearing wellness checks as routine as annual exams for vision or dental. It goes beyond awareness. It’s about encouraging action, something Amplifon Americas is especially passionate about.

Each year, millions of Americans with hearing loss go untreated. Substantial research and anecdotal data show that untreated hearing loss is linked to numerous physical and mental conditions, as well as quality-of-life issues.

Amplifon Americas Executive Vice President, Marc C. Lundeberg, who was recently appointed to the board of the HIA, says “ good hearing empowers an active and healthy life, increasing social engagement, improving communication, and lowering the risk of isolation.”

Lundeberg looks forward to continuing to help shape the dialogue about hearing health care as the newest board member of HIA and has this message for all, “ Keep your genius unleashed, control your destiny, and stay vital! Get your hearing checked! ” To check your hearing, visit your local hearing healthcare professional.

In addition to getting a hearing check, there are many ways to support Better Hearing and Speech Month. Encourage those around you to get a hearing test, spread awareness of hearing health among your network, and become an advocate by visiting www.hearwellstayvital.org.
