Research Team Studying Noise Exposure in Firefighters for Better Treatment of Hearing Loss


The noise all around us – at work, at home, at concerts and sports events, when we travel – can have a lasting impact on how well we hear. University of Miami researchers, Suhrud Rajguru, Ph.D., and Hillary Snapp, Au.D, Ph.D., are interested in better diagnosing and treating noise-related damage to the ears for everyone. To better grasp how noise impacts all of us, they set out to first fully understand the impact of noise in one occupational group, firefighters.
