Our Partners and Sponsors

Companies make a tremendous contribution to helping people with hearing loss thrive. Through partnership and sponsorship, they provide vital tools and engagement and help to extend our collective reach and impact.

Become a National Partner 

Leading companies partner with the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) to promote hearing health and encourage more Americans to act on their hearing. As HLAA Hear for Life Partners, these companies work with us throughout the year to mobilize, educate and advocate so people with hearing loss, and those at risk, can live better lives.

They join Walk4Hearing, spreading awareness, forming company teams and sharing vital information about their services and resources with our hearing loss community.
