Allina Medical Clinic – Woodbury is providing free hearing screenings to patients in recognition of "International Noise Awareness Day."
The screenings will be offered Wednesday, April 16, from 9 to 11 a.m. and 5 to 6:30 p.m.
Continuous exposure to noise above 85 decibels can be harmful to hearing and documented research has found noise does not have to be that loud to lead to physiological changes in blood pressure, sleep, digestion and other stress-related disorders. Studies exist documenting the harmful effects of noise on children's learning and behavior.
Appointments are not necessary. Attendees should check in at the Allina Medical Clinic – Woodbury greeter desk.
Call (651) 241-3000 for more information.
