August, 28, 2014
Get your hearing checked for free Sept. 9 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. 14 and Nov. 11. 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. "The screenings are a great way for the students at ISU to interact with members of the community. We get to contribute to our community, while being provided an opportunity to learn and grow as clinicians," said Erika Simoneau, speech-language pathology graduate student at ISU-Meridian.
