Newborn Hearing Care Program
We support the follow-up testing and care to all newborn infants who fail hearing screening at Beaumont-Oakwood Health Care System.
Children and Youth Screening Program
The Lions Hearing Center provides hearing screening for children in schools, Head Start Programs, the Wayne County Juvenile Detention Facility, and at various health fairs. Follow-up care and treatment is offered as well at our locations in the tri-county area, and for those families that have no insurance or ability to pay – care is provided at no charge.
Senior Outreach Program
We provide hearing screening services to any senior program, community center or living facility in the region. Screenings are offered on location and at no cost to participants. We also offer follow-up care and evaluation through the Michigan Ear Institute. Screenings are done by trained staff and volunteers.
Hearing Aid Assistance Program
For those individuals who qualify (proof of low-income) we provide discounted hearing aids that are very affordable. Those that live in southeastern Michigan (Macomb, Monroe, Oakland and Wayne counties) are eligible if your annual income falls within our guidelines. Various models and types are available for as low as $125 for one hearing aid.
The Lions Hearing Center provides small grants to Wayne State faculty and residents that focus on hearing loss prevention and related disorders.
Education and Awareness
We provide a wide range of education to the general public and hearing care professionals on hearing health care through our website, health fairs, newsletters, conferences and workshops.
