dc.description.abstract With the population of older adults over 65 years of age reaching 40 million individuals in 2010, much emphasis is being place on their health and well-being. A large number of this older adult population continues to work and/or still maintains an active lifestyle placing them at a higher risk of developing a noise-induced hearing loss. Noise-induced damage to the inner ear not only causes hearing loss, but also may create other auditory issues like tinnitus and hypersensitivity. Current research is making strides connecting the links between genetic factors and susceptibility, as well as pinpointing antioxidants and vitamins that may lessen susceptibility. Noise-induced hearing loss is a completely preventable condition with the use of adequate hearing protection. Because of this, there is a growing need for the development and implementation of a hearing health and conservation program for adults and older adults to become educated on and protect themselves against noise-induced hearing loss. en_US
