IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa Wendell Johnson Speech and Hearing
Center has extended its audiology services for adults and children. Services
will now be available from
4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays in addition to regular hours from
9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
Adults and children who have concerns about their hearing or individuals
who have a hearing loss or other auditory disorder may call the center to
schedule an evaluation and receive treatment, including hearing aid assessment
and fitting. The evening hours are being offered to accommodate the schedules
of parents and other adults who work during the day.
"The extended hours will better meet the community's needs," said
Jodi Heimer, UI clinical assistant professor of speech pathology and audiology.
"We already are booking many evening appointments."
Heimer, who joined the UI faculty this year and supervises the audiology
services, said graduate students will conduct the hearing assessments under
the direction of departmental faculty members.
