Tanya Hall, Founder and CEO of hearts4hearts, talking about research revealing over a quarter (28%) of Australians have never heard of heart valve disease, its impact, challenges, and symptoms, yet half a million Australians are living with the condition.

Gerald Quigley, Community Pharmacist, talking about World Hearing Day (Sunday 3rd March) and the new research revealing that only 2% of Australians prioritise their hearing over other health aspects.

To find a local clinic and book a hearing screening today, Australians are encouraged to speak to their local health professional; and to find out more about hearing implants.
