Throughout my educational journey, I have always taken pride in helping others. Walk4Hearing is the only nationwide event bringing attention to hearing loss and promoting the importance of hearing health. Donations are used to support HLAA’s national awareness and education programs, HLAA Chapters, and State Associations, and alliance organizations who help extend HLAA’s mission into local communities.
Walk4Hearing is about sharing an experience, learning from each other, making memories, and taking the first step toward better hearing health. Participating in the Walk means joining thousands of people across the country and right in our neighborhoods who understand what it’s like to live with hearing loss.
I help my community in various ways. I am a frontline worker in three major health systems in Detroit. One of my jobs is to provide newborns with their first hearing screen as a part of the Michigan EDHI program. This is something I am passionate about and has led me to learn more about neonatal and pediatric hearing and balance health. I am excited to learn from the talented audiologists at Henry Ford Hospital who are supervising and teaching our courses at Wayne State University. I am proud to advocate for others who might not be able to advocate for themselves.
I love helping my community, but I can't do it alone. It all starts right here in my own community with generous people like you, who are willing to step up and support me. Can I count on you?
