Kilwins Ice Cream Run

The Hearing Center at Jacksonville Hearing & Balance Join Kilwins Ice Cream Run (5K and One Mile)

The Hearing Center at Jacksonville Hearing & Balance Institute is proud to join Kilwins to be a sponsor of this year’s Kilwins Ice Cream Run (5K and One Mile) to benefit Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech in Jacksonville. The Clarke mission is to provide children who are deaf or hard of hearing with the listening, learning and spoken language skills they need to succeed. Clarke impacts the lives of children and adults through education and early childhood programs, hearing services, mainstream services, research, curriculum development, and the teachers and professionals trained by Clarke who take their special skills to all parts of the world. They teach children who are deaf and hard of hearing how to listen and talk using the latest technology – all so each person who receives the caring and compassionate services delivered by Clarke is able to reach his or her full potential. The Hearing Center’s audiologists, along with Douglas A. Green Jr., MD and the staff at Jacksonville Hearing & Balance Institute, know Clarke is more than a school, it is a place that allows new horizons for those they serve. Register now and come along with us – run and walk to help this extraordinary organization! Sign up today – and bring your friends: //www.clarkeschools.org/icecreamrun

Cochlear Americas Open House Event

Learning About Cochlear Implants

If you or a loved one has a severe hearing loss and have tried hearing aids without success you may be a candidate for a cochlear implant. A cochlear implant is an implantable device that works together with an externally worn processor to bypass the damaged portion of the inner ear to deliver sound to the brain. Due to damage to the organ of hearing, many people find that hearing aids simply amplify sound and do not provide clarity or understanding.

To learn more about cochlear implants and other implantable devices please join Jacksonville Hearing and Balance Institute as we partner with Cochlear Americas to host an Open House event on Wednesday, March 7th, 2018. Representatives from Cochlear Americas will be available from 8am-3pm to answer questions, discuss candidacy and show models of cochlear implants and other implantable devices. A cochlear implant audiologist from Jacksonville Hearing and Balance Institute will be available from 10-12pm and from 1-3pm to discuss the evaluation and follow up process.

Mark your calendars for this wonderful and informational event. Feel free to drop by at your convenience any time between 8am and 3pm.
