Dr. Bronzaft has given testimony on the hazards of noise to government and health organizations and has served as an expert witness in court cases. She advises U.S. public officials, both locally and nationally, and anti-noise organizations in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom on the dangers of noise.

Her latest chapter: Noise: Not Just Hazardous to your Ears - Harmful to Physical and Mental Well Being appears in the The Consumer Handbook of Hearing Loss and Noise.
The media, in the United States and internationally, frequently quotes Dr. Bronzaft on the issue of noise and she lectures on noise both in the United States and abroad. Region 2 of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded her a Certificate of Appreciation for her achievements in the protection of the environment.
