Get Involved in Community Outreach
The upcoming year presents us with a great opportunity to continue service project traditions and collaborate with organizations for chapters to participate in community outreach.
Special Olympics Healthy Hearing
Special Olympics is the largest global public health organization dedicated to serving individuals with intellectual disabilities, providing free health screenings and health information to Special Olympics athletes at local, regional, and world games. Volunteers at Special Olympics Healthy Hearing (SOHH) events perform hearing screenings on the Special Olympics athletes, educate the athletes about their hearing, and make medical referrals when appropriate.
SAA Humanitarian Week/World Hearing Day
Organized by the World Health Organization (WHO), World Hearing Day is held annually on March 3 after being introduced at the First International Conference on Prevention and Rehabilitation of Hearing Impairment in 2007. Each year, the WHO and other international and local organizations carry out ear- and auditory perception-related activities and events to promote hearing health and care around the world.
