Starkey Hearing Foundation

Starkey Hearing Foundation Honored to Welcome Starkey Hearing Alliance in Giving the Gift of Hearing.

Audiological & Speech Associates proudly supports the Starkey Hearing Foundation. 

Starkey Hearing Foundation uses hearing as a vehicle to reflect caring and improve the lives of individuals, families and communities around the world, by helping them reach their full potential and our very own Tom Todd of Audiological & Speech Associates saw first hand the impact the Starkey Hearing Foundation has made around the world. 

Tom joined other Starkey Hearing Alliance members to assist the Starkey Hearing Foundation in giving the gift of hearing to more than 7,400 hearing impaired children and adults in Piedras Negras and Mexico City, Mexico and San Pedro Sula, Tegucigalpa and La Ceiba, Honduras.

"I remember the excitement and patience of the people upon our arrival the first day. After meeting my interpreter, Esther, a traveling OBGYN and my right hand in communicating with patients, we began the fitting process. With each fitting I observed and received many smiles and hugs from both the patients and the families. I remember a particular older patient at the end of the day who had been there since 6:00 a.m. She showed great patience and gave Esther and I the biggest smile of the day and looked forward to hearing her grand kids and family. Talking to Esther and all the patients made me realize it wasn't about hearing it was the feeling of hope and a better life for themselves and their families."
