Many school-aged children have some degree of hearing loss. At Massachusetts Eye and Ear, a multidisciplinary pediatric hearing loss clinic lead by Dr. Michael Cohen brings together otolaryngology, audiology, speech and language pathology, and genetics to collectively review each patient's case and determine a course of action. Donations will help to aid continuing research of causes and treatments for children with hearing loss. All funds will be donated to support Pediatric Hearing Loss research at Massaschusetts Eye and Ear.
