Along with this commitment to our valued patients, we also strongly believe in spreading the word about hearing healthcare throughout Tucson and its surrounding communities.
Arizona Hearing Specialists Supports Alzheimer’s Association RivALZ Football
Arizona Hearing Specialists is a proud sponsor of the Alzheimer’s Association RivALZ flag football fundraiser events. The links between hearing loss and cognitive decline are well documented. But, the daily struggles for the families and health care providers are less well known. Through our involvement with the Alzheimer’s Association, we hope to build awareness and help support patients, families and practitioners.
About the Alzheimer’s Association
The Alzheimer’s Association is a global organization working to advance care, support and research across the world. From face-to face support to online education programs and promising worldwide research initiatives, the money you raise makes a difference in the lives of those facing Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s Association RivALZ is a volunteer-driven event that engages young professionals in friendly but fierce flag football games around the country. As part of the competition, teams are organized around age-old rivalries — East vs. West, Blondes vs. Brunettes, City vs. Suburbs — that inspire fundraising, awareness and action in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
The funds raised through RivALZ benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. We strive to:
- Help families across the country by continuing to provide and enhance programs focusing on education and support.
- Advance critical research studies into methods of treatment, prevention and ultimately, a cure.
- Speak up for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s through our public policy initiatives.

In addition to volunteering their time by providing audiological services, members from all three of our locations came together, raised more than $1,200 and collected clothing, toys and non-perishable food items for needy children and families.
Arizona Hearing Specialists was proud to have donated to this event in the fight against Alzheimers. The event raised over $71,000.
Improving Lives: Our Partnership with St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic
Arizona Hearing Specialists is a proud supporter of St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic in Nogales, Arizona, the longest running border health project in the U.S. St. Andrew’s provides free hearing healthcare services on the first Thursday of each month to children from Mexico with serious medical problems who don’t have access to care or treatment. Dr. Gasch and her staff volunteer their time and services to the more than 200 children who seek treatment at St. Andrew’s every month.
We invite you to join us in supporting St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic by donating your old or unused hearing aids. Our audiologists service all donated devices, then reprogram and fit them for a child in need. Your unwanted hearing aids can make a tremendous difference for a hearing-impaired child, and we are always happy to accept donations or answer any questions you may have.
