CHEARS: Conservation of Hearing Study

Thank you for your ongoing participation in the Nurses' Health Studies and your interest in participating in the CHEARS study on hearing and hearing loss. As you may know, hearing loss is an extremely common condition. However, the risk factors that contribute to hearing loss, other than age, have not been sufficiently studied. Your participation will help us identify risk factors for hearing loss. Of course, in this special study, we need to include women who do not have hearing loss as well as those who do.

  • If you have a paper form, your ID is printed on your survey.
  • If you can't find your ID, send us an e-mail with your name
