Mobile hearing screenings
CHC’s Mobile Hearing Test Unit takes to the streets of NYC to promote hearing health and wellness through hearing loss detection, prevention, conservation, and education. Over 250,000 infants, children and adults have had a hearing screening on board our hearing van.
Bringing healthy hearing to public spaces
Sponsor the Mobile Unit to visit schools, health fairs, community events, city parks and any other citywide destinations. Disseminate information on company products while offering a community service, display corporate signage, and take advantage of this press worthy story – pitch media surrounding the sponsorship.
Companies who have participated include: Phonak, Widex, Oticon, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, Conversor Products and many others. Call 917-305-7842 (v) or email us to learn more.
We invite individuals, foundations, and other organizations to become a sponsor of the Mobile Unit and bring hearing healthcare to your employees or local community.
Project P.A.T.H. (Preschool Access to Hearing)
The five boroughs of New York City are the only part of the state where public school children do not receive hearing screenings in school. The city was exempted from this mandatory public health benefit in 2009 on faulty logic.
Unfortunately, childhood hearing loss is not rare, and left undiagnosed, its impacts on learning and even life trajectory are devastating.
CHC developed Project P.A.T.H. (Preschool Access to Hearing) to provide the missing hearing screening, referrals, and bi-lingual support materials that thousands of New York City preschoolers and their families would never otherwise receive. Philanthropic giving keeps this program visiting nursery schools and Head Start Centers in disadvantaged neighborhoods as often as possible.
