Audiology students to participate in Walk to Silence Tinnitus

ATSU Audiology program students will participate in the first AZ Walk to Silence Tinnitus on March 5 at DC Ranch in Scottsdale, Ariz.  The team, named  Arizona Tinnitus Sufferes Unite, comprises members of ATSU’s Student Academy of Audiology. Megan Larson, Au.D. ’13, and Emily Nairn, Au.D. ’12, are co-captains.

“The Student Academy of Audiology at ATSU wanted to get involved in the walk to help find a cure for tinnitus, as well as help people get a better understanding of tinnitus,” said Larson. There are also many students in our program who suffer from tinnitus and have first-hand experience with tinnitus.”

Tinnitus, commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” affects 50 million Americans, and of those, up to 16 million seek medical attention for this sometimes chronic condition.

The AZ Walk to Silence Tinnitus will raise funds for the American Tinnitus Association’s research grant program and help contribute to the eventual cure of this debilitating condition.  If you would like to join ATSU’s team, go to https://walk.ata.org/team-ages/arizonatinnitussufferersunite.
