ReSound "Moments Movement" Awards Grants to Hearing Healthcare Professionals

ReSound Is Collecting Patient Stories and Awarding Monthly Grants to the Hearing Healthcare Professionals That Help Make Them Possible

BLOOMINGTON, MN--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - ReSound, a technology leader in hearing aid solutions, has launched the "Moments Movement" as a way to recognize Hearing Healthcare Professionals and elevate the patient "Moments" that inspire and motivate them daily.

Moments are the extra ordinary things that HHPs do to make the lives of their patients better. Every time a patient's face lights up because they can hear again -- that's a Moment. Moments make being a professional in hearing healthcare rewarding.

Through the Moments Movement, ReSound supports the professionals who counsel, coach and connect with their patients to find solutions to restore the joy of hearing. It's a way to share these inspiring Moments and celebrate the contributions, efforts and energy that professionals bring to the work they do. ReSound is reaching out to the Hearing Health Community, inviting them to share the Moments that have inspired them the most.

To create awareness and support for the Moments Movement, ReSound is awarding a monthly Moment Maker Grant. For every Moment shared on ReSound's Moments Web page, ReSound will add funds to the Moment Maker Grant. The Grant can be used by HHPs for continuing education, as a scholarship, or for charitable events or mission trips. Through the Moment Maker Grant, ReSound aspires to support professionals as they continue to create Moments with their patients.

Jennifer McGlothlin of Elite Audiology & Hearing Care was the first recipient of ReSound's Moment Maker Grant. McGlothlin, a private practice owner in Mt. Juliet, TN, will use the grant to attend the Tinnitus Practitioners Association - Associate Course in December.

"I feel so blessed to have been awarded the first Moment Maker Grant," said Jennifer McGlothlin, Au.D. "I have been wanting to attend the TPA course for a while now, but as a start-up practice owner, the funds just weren't there. Now, I look forward to being able to help tinnitus sufferers with the knowledge I am sure to gain in this course. Thank you, ReSound, for helping us make special Moments with our patients."
