At Hyperacusis Research, fostering collaboration is a part of our DNA. We continued to expand our collaborations with researchers at the 2018 ARO meeting where met with many researchers for more in-depth discussions on hyperacusis.
A vital part of our annual fundraising season is our Boston-area Benefit Dinner. Combined with your efforts, we have raised more than $27,000 this year for research to find a cure for hyperacusis. Your support is making a difference in moving research forward.
