Pacific EarClinic to award free hearing aids

Write an essay to nominate someone to receive devices

Pacific EarClinic, the newest addition to the Pacific University School of Audiology, will be donating a pair of new digital hearing aids valued at $6,000 to community members in need.

To nominate someone, individuals may submit a written essay to earclinic@pacificu.edu describing why you feel that person should receive the gift of better hearing. Nominees must not qualify for any other hearing aid benefit program. Essays must be emailed or dropped off at the clinic no later than Jan. 30, 2015.

Be sure to include your full name and telephone number with nomination essay. Selected recipients will be notified by phone or email in mid-February.

Located on the fourth floor of the Tuality Medical Plaza (333 S.E. 7th Ave.) in downtown Hillsboro, Pacific EarClinic provides a wide range of hearing services to people of all ages, including newborn diagnostic hearing assessments, hearing evaluations for ages 5 and up, balance disorder/dizziness evaluations, tinnitus evaluations, hearing instrument services and assistive listening consultations.
