Healthy Hearing conducts hearing screenings. Reduced hearing can have a significant negative impact on an athlete’s ability to respond to directions, as well as understand verbal information from coaches at practice and competitions. Hearing loss affects one’s safety and interpersonal relationships. A hearing screen is the first step in the process of identifying hearing loss and preventing its negative effects from occurring in sports and social events. Athletes that attend Healthy Hearing will receive a free gift!
When: Saturday, April 13, 2024 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Where: Gruenhagen, Library on the first floor across from Strong Minds
SOWI is excited to have a collaboration with HEAR WI to bring additional Audiology services to this event! Athletes with a need identified during the Healthy Hearing screen will be referred to HEAR WI’s Mobile Audiology Clinic (MAC) for further testing, earwax removal and/or hearing aid check & cleaning. MAC will be parked outside of Gruenhagen.
HEAR WI staff welcome coaches and caregivers to take advantage of their services if there is not an athlete waiting to see them. To receive hearing services, check-in at Healthy Hearing room (Gruenhagen Library), please do not go directly to MAC. Remember to bring your hearing aid with you to the event!
