CUW Free Hearing Evaluations

The CUW Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinic is seeking volunteers to receive free hearing evaluations at the school’s state-of-the-art Audiology Clinic this summer.

Unless you already know you have a problem, chances are it’s been a long time since you’ve had your hearing checked. Why not take advantage of the opportunity to have it tested for free this summer?

The School of Health Professions has limited appointments available on Monday afternoons through the end of July, on a first-come, first-served basis. Eligible participants include any person age 5 and up.

Tests are conducted in the program’s state-of-the art Audiology Clinic in the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center on the Mequon, Wisconsin, campus. They are administered by students in the speech-language pathology program, under the supervision of Dr. Kim Sesing, assistant professor of speech-language pathology at CUW.

If you haven’t had your hearing checked in a long time—or ever—it’s a good idea to get an evaluation, Sesing said. Even if you don’t think you have a problem.

“Whether the test reveals you have a hearing issue or simply shows that everything is fine, it can be very helpful down the road to have a baseline results for comparison,” she explained.

If you are not able to secure an appointment this summer—available on a first-come, first-served basis through July—more spots will be available in the fall.
