On Oct. 20, the ATSU Chapter of Student Academy of Audiology hosted E.A.R. Day for the Mesa, Arizona, community. The event provided families with opportunities to learn more about hearing, hearing protection, communication strategies, and available resources.
Children rotated through a variety of activities (as pictured) while parents attended a panel of guest speakers. A family lunch was provided, followed by an informational session where parents could talk to professionals who provide services and resources to help people with hearing loss. The event ended with a carnival for the whole family.
“To play a role in E.A.R. Day 2018 was one of the most gratifying experiences in my graduate career thus far,” says third-year audiology student Kelsey Artz, who organized the event. “To see members of our school and our community come together for all of the children was something truly to be proud of.”
