On October 21, the EarQ team provided the children of Kansas City with greater access to hearing healthcare services as part of the 2014 NFL & United Way Hometown Huddle event hosted by the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO.

Alongside other healthcare participants, like representatives from Team Smile the EarQ team, which included audiologists from Boys Town National Research Hospital in Omaha, NE, and Sertoma Speech and Hearing in Palos Hill, IL, offered hearing screenings and video ear inspections to local children.

“In partnering with the Kansas City Chiefs, our goal is to further hearing loss awareness and encourage greater adoption of hearing solutions throughout the community and beyond,” said Clifford Carey, communications director of EarQ. “It is quite appropriate to host the event in Kansas City, given that just last year Chiefs fans broke the Guinness World Record for loudest crowd noise at an outdoor sports stadium with a decibel level of 137.5.”
