Volunteers Sought for Study of Speech Understanding

Researchers in the department of communication disorders are seeking volunteers age 50-64 with “a little bit” of hearing loss for an NIH-funded research study on personal amplification products.

If you have noticed a “little bit” of trouble hearing or if you have you been told you are “not quite ready” for hearing aids, you are asked to consider participating in this study.

The study will require one, two-hour visit to a lab on campus. Participants will have their hearing tested and will be paid $10 per hour.

If interested, call 413/345-6760 or email hearingbrain@comdis.umass.edu
