Hear for You

Hear for You is a national campaign, designed to highlight the expertise and quality patient care provided by you, ADA members, and to foster recognition of the autonomous practice of audiology.

Please take the links below to the Hear for You materials, which will assist you in providing education, outreach and limited “no charge” services such as pure tone hearing screenings (which do not conflict with Medicare directives) to the general public. The Hear for You materials were created to be customized by you for your practice, in an effort to assist you in raising awareness about hearing healthcare and hearing loss prevention in your community, during National Audiology Awareness Month (October) and National Better Hearing Month (May).
