Invest in Your Health: Say What? Protecting Your Hearing (Trainer Module)

This Train the Trainer course is designed for teachers, Extension staff, 4H and FFA leaders and others who work with young adults.

Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is common (and preventable) but unfortunately, use of hearing protection among youth is not. 

By the end of the Train the Trainer session, participants/educators will be able to: 
- Understand the pathophysiology of hearing loss 
- Recognize the importance of preventing noise induced hearing loss 
- Use the Invest in Your Health training materials and classroom activities to teach hearing loss prevention
