FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOCAL AUDIOLOGY PRACTICE DONATES HEARING AIDS TO LONG-TIME PATIENT
Sacramento, Calif. (August 23, 2016)—S.E.N.T. Hearing Aid Center, a division of Sacramento Ear, Nose & Throat Surgical and Medical Group (SacENT), is fitting Gabby Eyman, a 24-year-old Sacramento native, with a pair of hearing aids as a part of their community giving program on August 31.
Eyman, a long-time patient of SacENT and S.E.N.T. Hearing Aid Center, was born with Turner Syndrome, a chromosomal disorder. Signs of Turner Syndrome include hearing problems, as well as short stature, delayed puberty, infertility, heart defects and learning disabilities. Eyman has worn hearing aids her entire life; her current pair of hearing aids are outdated and do not fit well.
The hearing aids, donated by Siemens/Signia, will make Eyman’s job as a full-time nanny much easier. S.E.N.T. Hearing Aid Center is donating all hearing aid services regarding fitting this
instrument, and follow-up thereafter to this patient. “I’m super excited to get these new aids,” said Eyman. “It is very hard to understand what I hear sometimes and these aids will help me so much.”
Hearing aids bring sound into the ear and amplify it to a level that compensates for the level of hearing loss. If not covered by any insurance, hearing aids can cost up to $5,000 for a pair. People with hearing loss typically benefit most from hearing aids that have been individually fitted and programed for their specific hearing needs by an audiologist.
To schedule an interview or attend the August 31 hearing aid fitting, please contact Rachelle Ruggles at 916-736-6699 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
