The HearStrong Foundation will shatter social stigmas and radically challenge the general perception of hearing loss in our society today. It will celebrate individuals who have not only faced hearing loss, but conquered it with a determined spirit, a focused mind and an unwavering heart.
Known as HearStrong Champions, these men, women and children are the cornerstone of the foundation, which is funded through the generosity of EarQ providers. People will nominate patients, friends, coworkers and family members who have refused to let hearing loss deter them from their goals to be named an official HearStrong Champion. Once selected by the foundation, champions will be celebrated in an official naming ceremony at their local provider’s office.
By publicizing champions in local and national press, the foundation can empower the 80% of people with hearing loss who have yet to seek assistance and motivate them to take control of their hearing health.
