On July 19 and 20, the HearStrong Foundation promoted hearing health awareness at the NBC 4 New York and New York Giants Health & Fitness Expo 2014 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
The team, which included several hearing healthcare providers affiliated with EarQ, HearStrong's main sponsor, offered free hearing health screenings and answered any questions that attendees had about their hearing health or today's advanced hearing technology.
Also sponsored by the NFL Players Association, HearStrong was proud to join the Giants and participate in such an enriching community event.
"It is truly inspiring to see the passion and energy provided by NBC 4 New York, the New York Giants, and the audiologists who volunteered their time and expertise to provide such wonderful services," said Clifford Carey, communications director of EarQ. "With these types of partnerships, we hope to raise awareness for hearing loss and its appropriate solutions and to inspire the four in five Americans with hearing difficulties who still have not decided to take control of their hearing health."
