An annual award honoring excellence, commitment and achievement in auditory research by a young scientist, presented by the NOHR Foundation at the yearly Midwinter Meeting of the Association for Researchers in Otolaryngology (ARO), was inaugurated in February 1998. The award is named for Burt Evans, Ph.D., a dedicated, promising auditory scientist who succumbed to ALS in 1997.
Past recipients are:
University of Maryland School of Medicine
Screening for Hearing Loss in Newborns
Auditory Science Publications
NOHR Foundation has provided funding for scientific publications which resulted from otologic conferences at the Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center at the University of Washington, the Kresge Hearing Research Laboratory at Louisiana State University and the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary.
NOHR had wonderful input and help from the organization HEAR (Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers) and its founder, Kathy Peck.
From time to time, NOHR Foundation is privileged to assist other philanthropic organizations which wish to fund hearing research, but need direction as to the best scientists and projects to support. NOHR Foundation has been honored to facilitate several substantial grants to auditory scientists from various other foundations and a health insurance provider.
