Widex announced its first Community Giveback Day that empowers HCPs to gift a free pair of Widex hearing aids to a member of their local community who would otherwise not be able to afford the purchase. The free fittings will take place on Feb. 26, 2024.

This announcement follows the recent introduction of the “Partners in Excellence for You” program—which this Widex Community Giveback initiative is part of—that designed to help partner HCPs gain the knowledge, confidence, and tools they need to thrive in the ever-evolving world of audiology, the company says.

“The Widex Community Giveback Program is intended to help our HCP partners make a real impact in the world of audiology and, more importantly, in their local communities,” says Widex Vice President of Marketing Alan Raffauf. “By joining the Widex Community Giveback Program, HCPs will become part of something that is truly special and meaningful for those they serve. We are proud to partner with them to give the gift of sound to a deserving member of their community later this month.”

According to Raffauf, HCP partners who opt to participate in the program earn hearing aids to help a needy patient of their choice. They will also receive a specially prepared Digital Media Kit that will enable them to share their story with local media, their patients, and on their social media channels. 

In addition to the Community Giveback initiative, the program also includes the Widex On-the-Go app that is designed to reduce the administrative burden audiologists face so they can focus more on the clinical activities that matter most. Plus, the Widex VIP Education program provides access to practical, actionable, and relevant sales training to better prepare HCPs for the daily challenges they face.

Furthermore, “Partners in Excellence for You” grants HCPs access to technology for their business and patient education, sneak peaks at forthcoming new products, early registration access for training, as well as the ability to attend special guest speaker presentations and Q&A sessions, Widex says.

“We hope all our HCP partners choose to become a Widex Community Giveback hero today,” Raffauf says. “Together, we have the unique opportunity to bring Widex’ signature natural sound experience to more people than ever before — and make a lasting impact on patients’ lives.”
