Wow, what a month it’s been! We kicked off Better Hearing and Speech Month Monday May 2nd in all three offices and hit the ground running with a month filled with awareness and celebration. During the month we handed out 4000 earplugs and logged over 350+ hours of volunteer work and involvement from our staff members! Some of our favorite events included our “chEAR” section at the Kirkland Half Marathon and 5K, a special presentation “An Evening with the King” that hosted wonderful questions and awareness on stuttering, the new technology special event for our patients followed by our first ever Advanced Communication Workshop hosted in partnership with the University of Washington! We topped off the month of events with four days of hearing awareness at the Northwest Folklife Festival letting concertgoers know how important it is to protect their ears!
