USU Audiology Students Reflect on Humanitarian Mission

The Herald Journal Tuesday, May. 14, 2019

Eleven Utah State University students returned from the Dominican Republic on Sunday after a weeklong volunteer mission with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to provide hearing aids to individuals without access to health care. Audiology students in the doctoral program at the Sorenson Legacy Foundation Center for Clinical Excellence have raised funds all year as part of a course designed around the service mission. The students pay for the missions themselves, holding bake sales to raise the money to cover the trip. ... The doctoral program in audiology is a specialization in the disability disciplines Ph.D. program in the Emma Eccles Jones School of Education and Human Services. The trip is part of an ongoing service-learning opportunity with Starkey Hearing Foundation that Utah State has been a part of for 14 years.
