Sertoma’s primary focus is on assisting the more than 50 million people with hearing health issues and educating the public on the issues surrounding hearing health. In order to achieve these goals Sertoma has undertaken a multi-faceted approach by launching programs that address both the treatment and prevention aspects of hearing health. Sertoma also sponsors community projects to promote freedom and democracy, to assist youth and to benefit a variety of other local community needs
