Songs for Sound Is Partnering with Easton to Give the Gift of Hearing
The Hearoes Tour, brought to you by Songs for Sound, formerly known as The Hear The Music Project, is a full service hearing health experience touring America. Sponsored by Eargo, a hearing aid company with an affordable, nearly invisible hearing aid, the Hearoes experience offers 12 months of touring and over 200 events coast to coast.
The tour will make a landmark stop at Easton Town Center Sept. 13 - 15 as Easton partners with Songs for Sound to bring this free service to its community and guests.
Founder Jaime Vernon, a Columbus native now living in Nashville, shares her passion for hearing loss, "My daughter's deafness was missed. Multiple check points in her hearing healthcare and she was continually passed on as 'fine, she'll talk soon'. Ma Ma and Da Da never came. Lexi wasn't responding to simple noises like a doorbell, dog barking or a fire alarm. After pushing our way to an Audiologist, we received devastating news 'your child is deaf'. By two years of age, Lexi had received a bilateral cochlear implant surgery and began saying those first words. Her very first words? 'Ma Ma'. It was the BEST day of my life!"
Aboard the multi-faceted hearing health experience, guests receive a state-of-the-art free hearing screening through the Otokiosk software sponsored by Otohub, receive free hearing protection, printed results, emailed digital results, demo Eargo hearing aids and more! Mearacle Maker sponsors Cochlear Americas and Sertoma support by providing clinic finders, resources and volunteers.
When planning a tour, Songs for Sound asks: WHO NEEDS THESE SERVICES THE MOST? Over 60% of the 24,000 people served have some degree of hearing loss. 38% of children, 68% of Seniors and Veterans (85% of senior veterans) all need a further evaluation with a hearing healthcare professional.
People living in rural communities often don't have access to a hearing healthcare facility or they don't know how to navigate hearing healthcare. Children are not receiving regular hearing screenings, seniors don't know how to access affordable hearing aids. The greatest issues in hearing healthcare? AWARENESS of solutions, ACCESS to testing and devices, AFFORDABILITY of quality hearing devices, and the STIGMAS associated with hearing loss which cripples Americans into taking ACTION.
Please Join Songs for Sound September 13-15 at Easton on the Town Square. Ages 5 & up are welcome and if you have any trouble hearing, you can demo an Eargo hearing aid and even touch, feel a cochlear implant.
