Text Box: “NOISE DESTROYS - TURN DOWN THE VOLUME”
ATA’s MASS MEDIA COVERAGE

ATA’s mission this year is to start a National Awareness Campaign to reduce the volume of noise in public places. Our intention is to develop an effective message with announcements, and  interviews with our Professional Associates which will be screened on national television, including coverage on radio and the print media.

We continue to be bombarded with excessively loud noises in the streets, shopping centres, nightclubs and cinemas, to name but a few. Members of the Australian Tinnitus Association know that overexposure to noise, certain ototoxic drugs, head and neck trauma and ear infections are the most common causes of tinnitus and hearing loss in our society. Unfortunately not every one knows that yet. Help us bridge this awareness void. We need your help to spread the word that needless exposure to loud noise can permanently damage hearing and lead to a condition called tinnitus.

We are all aware of the adverse effects of smoking, sun and alcohol to our health. What has long been neglected is the adverse effect of noise to our ears. ATA aims to take the lead to change this – we need to make this fact common knowledge.

ATA needs to convey this message nationwide. However, media coverage does not come cheap. We can only achieve this with your help!

Your generous donation will help to prevent a tinnitus epidemic in generations to come.

Yours faithfully

Paula De Hair

President
Australian Tinnitus Association (NSW) Limited
