September, 28, 2016
Get your hearing checked for free at a series of screenings starting Oct. 11 at the Speech and Language Clinic at the Idaho State University-Meridian Health Science Center, 1311 E. Central Drive.
Free screenings are also set for Nov. 8, Dec. 13, Feb. 7, March 14 and April 11. Hours are 3-6 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, will conduct the screenings.
Participants will receive their results immediately, including referrals if further evaluation is needed, according to organizers.
“Hearing screening events allow ISU graduate students to interact and serve community members while acquiring useful professional experience,” said Chelsea McKinnis, an ISU-Meridian speech-language pathology graduate student.
