"Test Your Ears At 60 Years"

The Campaign for Better Hearing announced today that it plans to distribute up to $100,000 worth of free hearing aids in 2019.

Close to 500 hearing health centers in the United States are participating in the Campaign for Better Hearing. Dr. Leslie Soiles, Au.D, who serves as chief audiologist for The Campaign for Better Hearing in the United States, said each of the participating hearing health practices will be contributing $5.00 for every completed hearing assessment. The Give Back program is designed to raise awareness about consequences of untreated hearing loss and distribute free hearing aids to those in need.

Dr. Soiles, who herself lives with hearing loss and wears hearing aids, says, "Time is worth more than money, yet most Americans with hearing loss wait up to 7 years before they address their hearing loss. The more people get their hearing checked today, the more we are able to raise and distribute free hearing aids to those who can't afford them. So, get your hearing checked today and help us Give Back," Soiles added.

Hearing Loss Know No Boundaries:
Campaign for Better Hearing is a global campaign, which recently launched in the United States. It is intended to educate and put hearing health on people's health care agenda. Its tagline, "Test Your Ears at 60 Years" encourages people age 60 and older to get a hearing assessment and begin hearing health monitoring every year thereafter.

It's easy:

•Schedule a FREE hearing assessment, call 866-837-8286 (866-TEST-AT-60) or request an appointment at CampaignForBetterHearing.US.
•Participating hearing health practices contribute $5.00 for every hearing assessment they complete on your behalf. In other words, you don't have to make any contribution other than you making the time for a FREE hearing assessment.
•Funds raised will be used to increase awareness about the consequences of untreated hearing loss and distribute FREE hearing aids to those who can't afford it.
•Each complimentary hearing assessment at one of our participating practices should take 30-45 minutes. The assessment is painless and non-invasive, and may include an otoscopy exam, baselining your current hearing with an audiogram, your ability to understand speech in noisy environments and more.

To schedule a hearing assessment, call 866-837-8286 (866-TEST-AT-60) or request an appointment at campaignforbetterhearing.us.
