NDCPD receives $900,000 for ND EHDI
The North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities, a University Center of Excellence at Minot State University, recently received funding of $300,000 per year for three years from the Health Resources Services Administration to continue the operation of the North Dakota Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Project. ND EHDI promotes timely infant hearing screenings, diagnosis, early intervention services and family support through training, technical assistance, site visits and public-awareness activities.
"Hearing loss continues to be the most common congenital condition in the United States," said Wendy Thomas, ND EHDI project director. "We are thankful to have continued funding to promote the hearing health of North Dakota infants."
