Tinnitus Awareness Week 2017 – Irish Events
Next week is Tinnitus Awareness Week 2017 and for the first time, several organizations from different countries will be working together to raise awareness of tinnitus. The aim is to organize activities around the globe that increase the awareness of tinnitus all in one week. I am delighted to hear this as I feel the impact will be much more widespread with so many great organizations involved. We also hold our own World Tinnitus Day event in April, so there’s plenty of chances to raise awareness of tinnitus throughout the year.
Below, I’ve compiled a list of events happening in Ireland. If I’m missing any, please let me know. Get in touch if you attend any of the below events and let us know how it went. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to keep up to date with all things tinnitus.
