World Hearing Day
At least 1 in 5 Europeans are currently exposed to noise levels that are considered harmful to their health? As a matter of fact, long-term exposure to noise has significant health impacts, including heart disease, sleep disturbance and noise-induced hearing loss. On March 2nd, the eve of World Hearing Day, Bocconi University students will be able to undergo a free hearing test through a new iPad-based technology (OtoPad). The initiative is supported by Amplifon, a strategic partner and donor of Bocconi University, as part of the "Ci Sentiamo Dopo - Listen Responsibly" project, which started in Italy in 2019 to promote good practices in responsible listening and hearing prevention among the youth.
