Abstract:

Hearing health in the Army has improved over time, largely due to the dedicated work of hearing health experts. However, noise-induced hearing loss and associated problems have not been eliminated. The Army Hearing Program continually evolves to address hearing health challenges, and maintains the momentum to build iteratively upon previous success. This report provides summary information regarding the prevalence of hearing injury experienced by U.S. Army Soldiers in 2015. Soldiers who completed a DD Form 2215 Reference Audiogram or DD Form 2216 Hearing Conservation Data during Calendar Year 2015 CY15 were included in the analysis.
