On January 30th, 2016, the Student Academy of Audiology in conjunction with A. T. Still University held the 2nd Annual Hearing, Education, And Recreation (H.E.A.R.) Day.
H.E.A.R. Day is a day intended to bring together Deaf and Hard of Hearing children ages 5 through 16 and their families to learn about hearing loss, Deaf culture, have fun, and build friendships.

This year the participants were encouraged to bring a buddy to share in the fun and education, bringing the total number up to 37 kids!

The kids spent the morning getting their face painted and bouncing in a bounce house with students of the School of Osteopathic Medicine, Arizona (SOMA), testing their speed and agility in an obstacle course powered by Physical Therapy students,  dodging the ‘enemy’ while playing laser tag with Physician Assistant students and Athletic Training students, and trying to beat the clock in Minute to Win it Games put on by Audiology students.


We would like to thank all of those that helped make this day possible!  We look forward to next years event that is currently scheduled for January 28, 2017.


To see pictures from our event, please visit our H.E.A.R. Day Facebook Page! Questions regarding H.E.A.R. Day can be emailed to hearday@atsu.edu
