The Better Hearing Institute (BHI) is a non-profit corporation that educates the public about the neglected problem of hearing loss and what can be done about it. Founded in 1973, we are working to: Erase the stigma and end the embarrassment that prevents millions of people from seeking help for hearing loss; show the negative consequences of untreated hearing loss for millions of Americans; and promote treatment and demonstrate that this is a national problem that can be solved.
