(ABC 6 News) – The World Health Organization has declared March 3 as World Hearing Day1 to raise awareness on how to prevent deafness and hearing loss and promote ear and hearing care across the world. 

According to the Center for Disease Control: One in five men and one in eight women have some degree of hearing loss. This creates engagement and productivity challenges when navigating the day-to-day responsibilities at work and it is something not many companies are talking about.

ABC 6 News anchor James Wilcox sat down with Hearing loss inclusion expert, Nicole Behne to discuss her work advocating for those suffering from hearing loss.
