To celebrate Hearing Awareness Week, the Australian Hearing Hub provided an opportunity for future students of Macquarie University to get their hearing checked, learn about communication technologies and learn about the importance of looking after their hearing at the Macquarie University Open Day on Saturday 20 August.

Professor David McAlpine, Director of Hearing Research at Macquarie University’s Australian Hearing Hub, and David Brady, CEO of Hear for You, were there to answer any questions that students had about hearing health.

At the event, over 60 hearing screenings were completed.

If you think you have some form of hearing loss, don’t wait. Make a booking and get your hearing checked at the MQ Speech and Hearing Clinic or the clinic at Australian Hearing both located within the Australian Hearing Hub on campus.
