Lions Clubs in your community are part of a world-wide service organization that has worked since 1917 to help those who are blind, deaf/hard of hearing, and in need. As an extension of that international mission, the Lions Hearing Centers were founded by Dr. Robert H. Mathog in 1999 as a partnership between Lions Districts 11A1, 11A2 and the Departments of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Wayne State University and Detroit Medical Center.
Today, our services include hearing screenings, educational programs, working with the deaf community, implementing outreach efforts throughout southeastern Michigan, and partnering with dozens of organizations to provide hearing care for all.
"Blindness separates people from things; deafness
separates people from people."
- Helen Keller
