  • Hear Well. Stay Vital. -- Be a Part of the Movement!

    May is Better Hearing and Speech Month! It’s a perfect time for hearing healthcare professionals to get especially visual and vocal to help their communities understand the significance of hearing wellness and how it impacts every facet of life.

    Your IHS family has teamed up with the Hear Well. Stay Vital. campaign to help bring consumer awareness to the importance of annual hearing wellness checks, and we’ve got awesome resources for you to use in your practice and community -- everything from ready-made social media posts and videos, to posters, and kinds of graphics.

    The easiest way to be a part of the Hear Well. Stay Vital. movement is to share the #hearwellstayvital posts from the IHS Facebook page, onto your personal and professional FB pages. You can share any of the #hearwellstayvital posts any time, but May 1 and 15 are special days for sharing. 

    On those two days, all of the Hear Well. Stay Vital partners will share the same unified message. Be a part of that viral message encouraging hearing healthcare checks by sharing our Facebook post, too!

    MARK IT IN YOUR CALENDARS -- MAY 1 AND MAY 15!!
