Salus University Audiology Students Fund and Create Clarke Care Kits


April 9, 2014—Last year when Salus University doctoral Audiology students visited Clarke Pennsylvania they were inspired by the students and staff. So much so, that they decided they wanted to help the school by providing a new supply of Clarke Care Kits.

The kits are distributed by early interventionists and audiologists along with information on each tool’s use and descriptions of how each tool improves the hearing aids’ functionality. The Clarke Care Kit includes a battery tester, dri-aid, tubing blower, and a listening tube. After raising and donating over $2,500, Salus University students provided the funding for 50 new Clarke Care Kits. Recently, students visited Clarke in Bryn Mawr to assemble the kits and they are now ready for distribution to Clarke's families. Clarke is grateful to their friends at Salus for providing these kits. They will give parents confidence that they are knowledgeable and able to care for their child’s hearing aids, and comfort in knowing their child is receiving the best access to sound possible at this time.
