Following a visit of Professors Bamford and Munro to the University of Ghana in 2014, it was recommended that AudMEd Trust should sponsor two lecturers for one week per year for a temporary solution to their staffing issues of their
MSc Audiology Programme.
Our next pair of lecturers will be visiting in Spring 2021. The topics to be covered are yet to be determined but likely to cover areas such as paediatric audiology, psychoacoustics, hearing aids, auditory rehabilitation and ABRs.
If you are interested, check this website every few months. The likely closing date for applications will be the end of November 2020.

Dr Miriam Robinson, local geographer and keen walker, led a sponsored walk, in aid of AudMEd on Aug 18th 2017, around Saddleworth, starting and finishing at Diggle.

On the 17th September 2016, a charity event was held in Wirral to raise funds for Aud-m-Ed. The event was organised by Shankar and Rama Rangan and the theme was Bollywood. The ticket sales were very encouraging. There were about 170 tickets sold and along with the participants who performed that evening and helpers we had around 180 people attending that evening.
The evening started with a few Bollywood dances performed by Anusha Rangan and ladies of the Wirral. It was followed by the live band that performed some lively old Bollywood numbers to which the guests were invited to the dance floor. Some moves were taught to them and soon the floor was filled to the tapping heels of the crowd in their colourful Bollywood attire.
A few games including Champagne square, quiz, auctions and a raffle helped us raise money for the charity. There was also henna painting and ear rings sale to add to the funds. The evening managed to raise almost £2200 in all!
The food was well appreciated and the feedback from the guests was positive with requests for the information for the next charity event!
