Ears & Beers, a Hearing Conversation Event (music and entertainment industry)

Ears & Beers, a Hearing Conversation Event for those in the music and entertainment industry is coming to Three Heads Brewing on Sunday, May 19th @ 1:00 pm.

1-hour workshop w/Q&A, free hearing screenings will be available following the lecture, as well as discounts on earmold impressions or custom musicians plugs. There will also be "universal fit musicians earplugs" available for purchase.

Dr. Gregory Horton, Au.D, a board certified audiologist and musician, will give an interactive presentation on how to safeguard your hearing when exposed to loud music and entertainment environments.

Repeated and prolonged exposure to music of varying intensities can lead to a wide variety of disorders including hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Learn how to identify the causes and symptoms of music and noise induced hearing disorders and how to protect yourself without sacrificing the fidelity of the music you love.

The music industry is not regulated therefore it is up to musicians and support staff to educate and advocate for themselves and to incorporate hearing health into their regular healthcare routine.

For more information about the event, please contact Dr. Greg Horton, Au.D - ghorton@rhsc.org | 585-271-0680, Ext. 1016.
