Providing Hearing Aids to People in Ghana

Dr. Layne M. Garrett, an audiologist at Timpanogos Hearing and
Balance, has given the gift of improved hearing to hundreds of
people in Ghana, from the capital city of Accra to tiny villages
across the country. Dr. Garrett remembers one small boy, about 3 years old, in Ghana in
2005. The boy’s family knew he couldn’t hear, so they brought him
to Garrett’s clinic, where the boy was fitted with a hearing
aid. He was then able to hear his mother’s voice for the first time.
