Chris Botti Joins with The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary to Encourage Baby Boomers to Get Their Hearing Tested
“As a musician, I know first-hand about the importance of hearing health. I cannot imagine a world without the ability to hear music. My world would be over!,” says world-renowned trumpeter and composer Chris Botti, who appears in a Public Service Announcement (PSA) released by The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. Filmed by noted videographer and photographer Fabrizio Ferri, with voiceover narration by composer, singer, author, actor, and activist Sting, the PSA is the centerpiece of a multi-platform hearing loss awareness campaign aimed to encourage baby boomers to get their hearing tested.

According to Ronald Hoffman, MD, “The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary created this site as a one-stop resource to help adults take control of their hearing health with a simple hearing loss self-test, information on where baby boomers can go to get their hearing tested, and tips about ways to prevent hearing loss. Hearing loss is a critical public health issue. Approximately 36 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss, and… with 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 each day, this number is skyrocketing.”
