Get ready to tune in to your ears and celebrate International Ear Care Day on March 3! This day was first established in 2007 by the World Health Organization (WHO) to raise awareness about the importance of ear health and preventing hearing loss. Did you know that more than 5% of the world's population – over 460 million people – suffer from disabling hearing loss? That's why it's important to take care of our ears and spread awareness about this often overlooked aspect of our overall health. So let's join forces and make some noise for healthy ears on this special day!
