This month we got a chance to learn about a local race that gives all their proceeds go to an organization called Hear the Cheers. The event will be held on September 21, 2019
“Hustle for Hearing is a 5K run/walk event that raises money for children who can not afford hearing aids in the Chicagoland area! This is the 8th annual Hustle for Hearing and put on by the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA)!
SAA is involved in providing hearing screenings at local events and all members are apart of the Audiology program at NIU. Northern Illinois Speech and Hearing Clinic provides full diagnostic and treatment capabilities and is involved in numerous outreach programs.
Our organization’s mission is to promote quality hearing and balance care but advancing the profession of Audiology through leadership, advocacy, education, public awareness, and supportive research!”
