Starkey Provides Hearing Health Care to the Washington Heights Community During Hearing Smiles Outreach Event

September 21, 2023

EDEN PRAIRIE, MINNESOTA – Starkey was proud to conduct a Starkey Cares Hearing Smiles Outreach event in Washington Heights, NY, providing hearing health services to more than 100 members of the local community.

The event helped raise awareness of the important role hearing health plays in overall quality of life.

“Hearing Smiles Outreach events are so important because hearing connects us to the world around us. We have the opportunity to see ‘hearing smiles’ firsthand – the smiles on people’s faces when they hear the world around them clearly for the first time.  We are giving people that connection back, and the expressions on their faces illustrate just how big of an impact hearing will have on their life.”

–Starkey President and CEO, Brandon Sawalich.

Starkey partnered with New York Attorney General Letitia James and Luis Miranda to put on the event for the Washington Heights community. Starkey conducted hearing screenings, provided industry-leading hearing aids, and will provide follow up services to the patients who received new hearing aids.

Starkey has a rich history of compassion and generosity that continues through Starkey Cares, helping people in our communities and around the world who do not have access to hearing health care resources and technology. Caring for one another is all Starkey does and remains an integral part of the company’s vision.
