Dr. Gulf Kasewurm, St. Joseph audiologist, returned to Rotary to discuss her recent trip to Peru for the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Working with local Rotary clubs in five cities, they fit and tested free hearing aids to 20,000 adults and children, about a 50/50 mix of children and adults. She also reported new initiatives in Africa where there are few audiologist.
