- Partner since: 2010.
- Mission: Hearing Health Foundation's mission is to prevent and cure hearing loss and tinnitus through groundbreaking research and to promote hearing health. HHF envisions a world in which everyone has the opportunity to enjoy life without hearing loss and tinnitus. The group aims to improve the lives of those living with hearing loss through research and programming. HHF is the largest U.S. nonprofit funder of hearing and balance research. Since its inception in 1958, HHF has allocated millions of dollars to hearing and balance research and has been a leader in driving new innovations and treatments for people with hearing loss. This includes funding research that led to the development of cochlear implants and many of today’s standard treatments for otosclerosis (abnormal bone growth in the ear) and ear infections.
- Areas of interest: Noise-induced hearing loss, tinnitus, hair-cell regeneration, central auditory processing disorder, Meniere's Diseases, hyperacusis, and other otolaryngological and vestibular disorders.
- Noisy Planet collaboration: Noisy Planet and HHF have worked together to promote noise-induced hearing loss messages. Noisy Planet’s prevention messages have been featured on HHF’s blog and social media outlets.
