My name is Melanie and I am currently in the Doctor of Audiology program at Northwestern University. I am also the fundraising chair for the Northwestern Student Academy of Audiology chapter, and am honored to be the team captain for our Walk4Hearing team.
The Walk4Hearing is the only nationwide event bringing attention to hearing loss and promoting the importance of hearing health. Funds raised support HLAA’s national awareness and education programs, HLAA Chapters and State Associations, and alliance organizations who help extend HLAA’s mission into local communities.
The Northwestern SAA chapter is an alliance organization supporting HLAA at the Chicago Walk4Hearing. Our participation and fundrasing efforts during this event help us make meaningful contributions to the world of hearing health and is a way for us to immerse ourselves into the community we serve as future audiologists.
Any contribution to the my team is greatly appreciated!
