School is Back in Session: The Protect Your Ears Program (PYEP)

Thursday, October 19, 2017

The Protect Your Ears Program (PYEP) is a University of Arizona Outreach initiative that partners with the City of Tucson Parks and Recreations after-school KidCo program. Since it's inception in 2012, PYEP has reached over 900 schoool-aged children in Tucson. This school year is no exception with the first site visit occuring on October 19th, 2017 at the Santa Rosa Park Recreation Center. PYEP continues to be a great learning oppurtunity for graduate and undersgraduate students to gain hands-on teaching experience by conveying the dangers of excessive noise exposure and the importance of promoting better hearing health hygiene in the pediatric population.
