ISU Meridian Health Science Center

Free hearing screenings at ISU-Meridian Health Science Center set for Sept. 17 through December

Sept. 12, 2013

Get your hearing checked for free Sept. 17 at the Speech and Language Clinic at the Idaho State University-Meridian Health Science Center, 1311 E. Central Drive, in Meridian.

Free screenings are also set for Oct. 15, Nov. 19 and Dec. 10. Hours are 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.  No appointment is necessary, and clinicians will see adults, teens and children as young as 3-years-old.
Audiology and speech-language pathology graduate students, under the supervision of licensed speech-language pathologists and audiologists, will conduct the screenings.

Participants will receive their results immediately, including referrals if further evaluation is needed, according to organizers.

"Research from John Hopkins indicates one in five Americans has significant hearing loss, far more than previously thought," said Dr. Gabriel Bargen, audiologist and assistant professor at ISU-Meridian.  

For more information, call Bargen at 373-1722 or clinic coordinator Cally Stone at 373-1723.
