A Special Message from Claire Schultz, CEO of HHF

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

-Helen Keller

We are so very grateful for your support of our research to cure hearing loss and tinnitus, and for your interest in prevention and hearing health. The following are some of our achievements during 2015:

Emerging Research Grants (ERG) - HHF awarded 10 grants in Tinnitus, Ménière's, Central Auditory Processing Disorder, and Hyperacusis. The longstanding commitment to funding the highest quality research projects remains an important priority. Learn more about how to fund a named grant, here.

Hearing Restoration Project (HRP) Published Research - HRP consortium members had their HHF-funded research published in renowned scientific publications, a big accomplishment that shows progress toward our goal and reinforces the value provided by our collaborative research approach. Check out our blog in 2016 for more updates on their path to find a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus. 

Research Briefings and Events - Our new series of live-video research updates offers an exclusive look at progress being made by our HRP Consortium members. These successful webinars, as well as HRP research events in local cities around the U.S., will continue in 2016. Watch our most recent briefing, here.

Safe and Sound - HHF and Puro Sound Labs, a consumer headphone company have partnered to spread the word about responsible listening, hearing loss prevention, and the importance of hearing health. Puro Sound's headphones have a built-in sound control device to help monitor music decibel levels and allow listeners to enjoy music while simultaneously protecting their hearing. Buy your pair today!


HHF Took Action - In August, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a report on the prevalence of disability in the U.S. that excluded hearing loss. HHF took action and asked others to join our efforts; 8,500 people signed our petition which we sent to White House representatives. The result was positive; the CDC issued a statement that changes are underway.

Your contribution today ensures we continue advancing the research in 2016. Together, we will make the dream of cure a reality.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. May the New Year bring you good health and happiness.  


Sincerely yours,

Claire Schultz, CEO
