Purpose of Initiative

Project Ear is an ongoing humanitarian effort to help the poor and underserved in developing countries who suffer from hearing loss and ear disease in order to maximize their social, academic, and economic potential.

Typical Service Commitment

Project Ear is interested in having medical students as well as other volunteers come aboard. Medical background and/or fluency in Spanish is ideal. Since 1995 Project Ear has completed 35 one-week medical missions in the Dominican Republic. Early trips consisted of 4-8 participants, but in recent years the missions have grown to an average of 15-19 healthcare workers (surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and audiologists). We are also looking for young, energetic people with varying skills (IT, accounting, fundraising) to assist with fundraising, organization of trips, website management, etc. Additionally, we are in the process of creating an on-campus student organization at The Ohio State University.
