Hearing Health Foundation's Hearing Restoration Project (HRP) scientist, Stefan Heller, was published in Cell Reports on June 9, 2015. Heller's lab identified patterns of gene expression that my determine whether the ear's inner pillar cells can give rise to new hair cells, which are key to hearing. This discovery could lead to new ways of evaluating, in animal models, experimental drug treatments intended to prevent hearing loss or restore hearing. Learn more about the HRPHeller's research and the path to a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus.
 
 
Supporters Adam and Nada Mussomeli hosted an intimate fundraiserfeaturing the artwork of their incredibly talented son Alex (age 11). Alex has sensorineural hearing loss and uses a hearing aid in his left ear and a cochlear implant in his right ear. Alex dreams of the day when HHF's Hearing Restoration Project finds a cure.
 
Alex’s paintings were sold with all the proceeds going to hearing research. HHF thanks Alex, Adam and Nada Mussomeli, and the event’s attendees for their generosity. Interested in planning a fundraiser? Email us at fundraise@hhf.org
 
Alex is a finalist in 2016 Oticon Focus on People Awards Student Catagory.

That's right, it's not a typo! Where I live, Virginia Relay has just announced availability of captions for conference calls. No more worrying about that caller who is always multitasking and talking into their speakerphone from two feet away. Learn about the other states that offer conference-captioning in our latest blog.
