Mission

The Better Hearing Institute (BHI) is a not-for-profit corporation that educates the public about the neglected problem of hearing loss and what can be done about it. Founded in 1973, we are working to:

  • Erase the stigma and end the embarrassment that prevents millions of people from seeking help for hearing loss.
  • Show the negative consequences of untreated hearing loss for millions of Americans.
  • Promote treatment and demonstrate that this is a national problem that can be solved
Program Description

To achieve these objectives, we:

  • Use the media, our web site and other communications forums to give the facts about hearing loss and promote better hearing.
  • Do authoritative research on the incidence of hearing loss, the benefits of treatment, the consequences of ignoring it and related topics.
  • Operate a call center for consumers who have questions about hearing loss. (Call 1-800-EARWELL.)
  • Reach out to health professionals through our Continuing Medical Education program, in order to help physicians better recognize the signs of hearing loss and work with patients to find solutions.
