“We call on the FDA to make OTC hearing aids a priority for the American people and address the deafening silence that has occurred since the federal government heard the call from advocates and issued a legislative mandate over three years ago." ~Kevin Franck Phd

 Untreated hearing loss has been linked to anxiety, depression, dementia, falls, and reduced mobility. The NIDCD says that only one in four adults who could benefit from hearing aids have actually used them. During this pandemic people have experienced way longer times to see a specialist. With the cost of the specialist and prescription devices combined many never get the treatment they deserve.

 Stop the politics and the power Physicians hold and let the people have an easily accessible , affordable and practical solution to their lifelong handicap. If you can buy headphones and earbuds literally anywhere (that contributes to hearing loss) why can't the public buy a device that helps!
