We’re celebrating a big birthday this month! August 2017 marks Hough Ear Institute’s 20th year as a non-profit research, education, and outreach organization and we’re kicking off the month with a look back at all the milestones we’ve had over the last two decades.

Dr. Jack Hough had a vision back in 1997 and from our humble start we’ve led the way in hearing research and development and are considered one of the foremost hearing research institutions in the world! Thanks to the generosity of our donors we’ve been able to steadily move towards a permanent solution to hearing loss. Lately our research has been developing so quickly there’s something new to share all the time. We’ve been described as Oklahoma’s best kept secret, but we want you, your family, your friends, the guy who rides the elevator with you, your coworker’s 3rd cousin by marriage twice removed, your Starbucks barista, and everyone else to know about who we are and what we’re doing. The easiest way to stay in the loop and share the good news is by signing up for our email updates on the right side of your screen.
