September, 30, 2015
Get your hearing checked for free at a series of screenings beginning Oct. 13 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. 10, Dec. 8, Feb. 9, March 8 and April 5. 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 and audiologists, will conduct the screenings. Participants will receive their results immediately, including referrals if further evaluation is needed, according to organizers.
“Screening events provide ISU students the opportunity to serve community members while gaining valuable professional experience,” said Elisabeth Gebhart, an ISU-Meridian speech language pathology graduate student.
