Hear Here Alabama mobile audio clinic

Hear Here Alabama!

Housed in the Department of Communicative Disorders at The University of Alabama, our nationally-funded program has been serving adults with hearing loss in West Central and South Alabama communities since 2016. We provide hearing screenings and hearing evaluations as part of our research program that aims to improve access to hearing healthcare in rural communities. Our grant funding is allowing us to understand how to best provide Over-the-Counter Hearing Aids to adults living in rural communities.
