ABOUT US

Our Primary Purpose and Mission

 

To provide a broad range of competent educational, informational, prevention, intervention, and advocacy services for the benefit of persons of all ages and backgrounds who have a hearing loss, who are deaf, who may be at risk for hearing loss or deafness, who have tinnitus, or who have a balance disorder.

 

The EAR Foundation of Arizona will work in a collaborative partnership with persons, health care institutions, governmental agencies, foundations, trusts, and other organizations to provide and promote the best possible outcomes for persons with hearing loss, and for those who are at risk for hearing loss or deafness, who are deaf, who have tinnitus, and/or who have a balance disorder. 

Stop CMV AZ

 

Our current initiatives include partnering with Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Midwestern University to form Stop CMV AZ – a collaboration to increase awareness about congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV), support the families impacted by cCMV, and advocate for those who need our voice in the state of Arizona.

About The EAR Foundation of Arizona

The EAR Foundation of Arizona has developed several successful and innovative programs and has greatly benefited from generous grants and gifts from Vitalyst Health Foundation, The Arizona Community Foundation, The Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, Valley Anesthesiology Foundation, and private donors.​

 

John D. Macias, MD, completed a clinical fellowship at The EAR Foundation in Nashville. Following completion of his fellowship in otology, a surgical subspecialty of otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat specialty), Dr. Macias joined a medical practice in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1995, Dr. Macias established The EAR Foundation of Arizona.

I am so grateful that we caught his vision problem early. I believe had I not known about this he would have had problems early on in school.

Lashey, Dominic's mom

If we had not learned about it until he was in school, it would have been too late.

Jennifer, Henry's mom

The early detection will help them succeed in school and recreational activities/hobbies. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
