MusiCares recently co-sponsored a successful hearing conservation outreach event, in collaboration with H.E.A.R. (Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers), at the annual Audio Engineering Society's (AES) conference, held Oct. 7–10 at New York's Javits Convention Center. A steady stream of the conference's attendees visited the MusiCares and adjacent H.E.A.R. booths, where they received information on hearing protection and other health maintenance issues. They were also able to obtain either custom-molded or standard types of hearing protection. Approximately 650 conference registrants took advantage of this valuable outreach.
