FOCUS ON FOUNDATION | HEAR Chapter Grants Help SAA Chapters Promote Hearing Health Care at Home and Abroad

One of the most popular grant programs supported by the American Academy of Audiology Foundation is the Humanitarian, Education, and Awareness Resources (HEAR) Chapter Grants, underwritten generously by Starkey Hearing Technologies. Offered twice per year to Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) chapters, these grants help fund the development of a new chapter project or the refinement of an existing project that is either humanitarian or educational in nature, or related to the awareness of audiology. SAA chapters must demonstrate a plan to raise money for a portion of the project funding.

I work at the Cleveland Clinic, a large, multisite academic medical center near downtown Cleveland, Ohio. My primary responsibility is managing the Hearing Implant Program, which includes our cochlear, bone-anchored, and auditory brainstem implant services, as well as our single-sided deafness clinic. I am also involved in some clinical research and teach the Implantable Technologies course for the Northeast Ohio AuD Consortium.
