Judy Huch, AuD, ’08, received the Humanitarian of the Year award from A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS) Alumni Chapter Board. Dr. Huch received the award at the American Academy of Audiology’s national conference in Columbus, Ohio.
The Humanitarian of the Year Award recognizes ATSU-ASHS graduates who have demonstrated exceptional dedication, enthusiasm, and leadership through nonprofit organizations or other outstanding volunteer service. The award is given to those alumni who advance the mission of the University through dedicated volunteer efforts in support of its programs, thereby ensuring the University’s impact on our community and future generations of students.
Dr. Huch is the founder of the nonprofit Grace Hearing Center in Tucson, Arizona and serves on the Arizona Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
Although her nonprofit clinic is only two years old, she has always been finding ways to give back to her community in her 25 years as an audiologist. At the heart of her nonprofit hearing clinic, Dr. Huch aims to reach more of the working poor. This adds to the continued efforts to give back to the profession and is a direct representation of what ATSU’s vision and mission describe.
Congratulations to Dr. Huch on this well-deserved recognition!
