SECD students and faculty pitch in at Special Olympics
23 Aug 2010
The Audiology Doctoral students (SECD) worked long hours the week of July 19-23 at the Special Olympics as part of the Healthy Hearing Program. All the audiology students pitched in, working 30 hours during the week. The students screened about 950 athletes. Nearly 130 hearing aids were provided to the athletes.
Kelly Wacker, as Lead Clinical Director, coordinated the event, including ordering equipment, registering volunteers, and training audiologists from across the nation who will establish Healthy Hearing Programs for their own state Special Olympics.
