Who We Are
The Lions of Virginia in partnership with the University of Virginia are striving to improve the quality of life of the hearing impaired in Virginia through research, treatment and education. The University provides educational information and materials to Lions Clubs for distribution throughout Virginia. UVA also provides ear plugs for hearing protection and brochures and educational materials are available on many Hearing Related topics.
An additional initiative of the Foundation is to provide educational programs for practicing ear surgeons on the latest surgical techniques to better care for hearing impaired individuals throughout Virginia and beyond.
The Hearing Foundation maintains a supply of booklets and flyers which warn people about the major causes of hearing loss and which outline Hearing Foundation research efforts. Lions Club requests these materials to support community-service projects related to hearing and deafness. List of Booklets and Flyers available:
- Noise and You
- Your Childs Hearing (A guide for Parents)
- Noise and Your Hearing
- Hearing Aids: Help for the Hearing Impaired
