IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

tinnitus are available that can help reduce the stress of the incessant
ringing and increase the coping skills and quality of life for
individuals who experience this condition; and
Whereas the American Tinnitus Association has designated the week beginning May
15, 2004, as the first National Tinnitus Awareness Week, in order to
raise public awareness and to further its mission to silence tinnitus

Other Communication Disorders, so that treatments for tinnitus
can be refined and a cure for tinnitus can be discovered.
