All of these organizations above have contributed to the development and growth of the Dangerous Decibels program. We began in 1999 with an idea, a vision of what a hearing loss prevention program for the public would look like. We have been fortunate to receive resources to begin work on this important issue. Now we need to continue the work, expand the vision, and develop further.

Though the Dangerous Decibels program is active and beginning to be embraced by many US and international groups, the program has limited funding to be able to expand. There are many new research studies we would like to embark on, many additional projects that will strength and grow this already exciting program. Please contact us if you or your organization would like to contribute to Dangerous Decibels valuable mission of educating the public about prevention of noise-induced hearing loss around the world. We would like to tell you about our ideas and needs.
