Team Island Better Hearing is walking for a cause! As dedicated Audiologists, we have we have been educating and helping our local communities for over 40 years. The Walk4Hearing is another way we have found to create awareness and give back to the communities we love. Please donate today. A portion of your heartfelt contribution will be allocated directly to the local School for Deaf, Cleary School, in Ronkonkoma.
Since 2006, the Walk4Hearing has raised more than $12 million and has become the largest walk for hearing loss taking place in cities across the United States.
We walk because hearing loss is a public health issue third in line after heart disease and arthritis.
- Approximately 48 million Americans have some form of hearing loss
- More than 30 million Americans are exposed to dangerous levels of noise in their workplaces
- An estimated 1 in 5 American teens experiences some degree of hearing loss
- 2.3 million Veterans receive either disability compensation for service-connected hearing disabilities or are in treatment for related hearing issues
Hearing loss affects one's ability to communicate every day in different situations - from a dinner conversation at a noisy restaurant, on the phone, to not hearing alarm clocks and smoke alarms. For people with hearing loss, these situations can be become obstacles without the right information and support.
