Community Outreach – Hearing Screening Events

Temple Head & Neck Institute | November 15th, 2016

The Temple Health Head and Neck Institute and Lewis Katz School of Medicine, Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery under the Division of Audiology participated in several community outreaching events throughout the Philadelphia area during the months of October and November 2016.



On Sunday, October 9th, 2016, Temple Head and Neck Institute sponsored the Hearing Loss Association of America, Walk4Hearing. The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) Walk4Hearing increases awareness about hearing loss, helps to eradicate the stigma associated with it and raises funds to provide information and support for people with hearing loss. Hearing loss is a public health issue, third in line after heart disease and arthritis.

Faculty, staff, and friends of the Temple Health Head and Neck Institute braved the rainy weather to support this great cause and join the walk which was located at The Navy Yard, 4747 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA. Our Team Captain was Larissa M Heckler, AuD, Instructor, Clinical Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University who is featured in the center of the photo.
