Hear Here Alabama

Without access to hearing healthcare, research has shown that those with hearing loss have fewer positive social interactions and decreased health-related quality of life. When positive social interactions decline, evidence has suggested that social isolation results, which in turn, can lead to depression or to other physical and cognitive declines.

 

The Hear Here Alabama project in the College of Arts and Sciences is working to help alleviate this problem in West Central and South Alabama by using its mobile audiology clinic to travel to underserved communities in the region. It provides vital hearing healthcare services including hearing evaluations and counseling for those with hearing loss. Funds for personnel, fuel, and maintenance are needed so that this crucial resource for underserved communities can continue. The cost for one trip to a community is approximately $1000.

 

We are asking for donations to be able to travel to each community at least once a month over a one-year period. Please consider giving to this much needed resource for Alabamians with hearing loss living in underserved communities. Your donation will help to reduce the social isolation that can occur with hearing loss.
