An Alumna Success Story

Dr. Angela Bright Pearson reaches behind her ear and gently removes the curved hearing aid nestled there and the attached small bud that fits into her ear canal.

She holds it up to be seen and speaks about the small size of modern hearing aids, how they run off computer chips and how people with even severe hearing losses can enjoy a better quality of life with good hearing care and equipment.

Bright Pearson speaks from personal experience: two hearing aids enable her to hear voices and other sounds to which she would otherwise be deaf. Severe ear infections from ages 2 through 12 caused permanent loss of hearing that became progressively worse through her teenage years. At 16, she finally received her first hearing aid and the world of clear, understandable sounds opened again to her.  Read the entire story here.
