DURHAM, N.H. -- The Speech, Language and Hearing Center in the University of New Hampshire’s Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders has expanded and now is offering hearing aid dispensing.

The clinic is located in Hewitt Hall and offers a variety of hearing services to UNH and surrounding communities. Mary Jane Sullivan, clinical audiologist, provides several diagnostic tests to determine if a hearing aid(s) would be beneficial. The most appropriate hearing aid technology is then chosen based on an individual's unique needs.
