World Hearing Network
World Hearing Network is an international volunteer organization of physicians and medical professionals dedicated to helping to alleviate hearing loss and diseases of the ear worldwide. Established in 1989, World Hearing Network under the guidance of Colorado Neurological Institute Physician Associate David C. Kelsall, MD, has sponsored nearly 25 missions to developing nations including Peru, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Vietnam, Honduras, Mexico and Jamaica.
The Network shares state-of-the art medical knowledge, trains local doctors in cochlear implant procedures, and audiologists in diagnostics and assessments. The volunteer group advance and transfer critical learning about hearing devices and toolsto local medical teams.
This opportunity makes it possible for people worldwide to hear, many without extended medical support. Hearing loss makes perception of speech and comprehension difficult, if not impossible. The sense of hearing underlies speech and language development, communication and learning. Without it, the loss often leads to isolation, frustration and depression.
