The team also assisted members in finding their local provider so they can continue their journey to hear better upon their return home. EarQ is a member discount program provider for the NFLPA.
“Partnering with the NFLPA to improve hearing education for their players and the growing number of Americans who could benefit by hearing better is a very important focus of EarQ‘s commitment to help people reconnect to their lives,” said Ed Keller, president of EarQ. “At the NFLPA annual conference, we were able to find answers for the players with hearing difficulties and start them on the path to finding the right solution.”
