For eight days, Collingwood Hearing Clinic will help the Starkey Hearing Foundation team of audiologists and staff deliver hearing care and fit each of the recipients with their very own customized, hearing device.
"We are so excited to be joining Starkey Hearing Foundation for the eighth time on this mission," said Sue Vermeulen. "The Foundation uses hearing as a vehicle to reflecting caring and change lives around the world. We here at Collingwood Hearing are honored to do our part in delivering the gift of hearing to those in need. This is my eighth mission and Sheri's third, and we cannot imagine not being part of this wonderful initiative."
