PLEASE NOTE: MAA leadership has decided not to participate in the 2021 Minnesota State Fair. This was a difficult decision to make, but the safety of our membership and patients is our top priority. We look forward to joining again in 2022, assuming it’s safe to do so. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these ever changing times.
The Minnesota Academy of Audiology (MAA) is proud to sponsor a booth at the Health Fair 11 at the Fair exhibit at the Minnesota State Fair. (Health Fair 11 at the Fair offers free and low-cost health checks and health education and information to fairgoers.) For several years now, MAA audiologists have volunteered to staff a booth and offer audiological services for a small fee. Previous years we have offered:
Video Otoscopy Exam
MAA audiologists use a video otoscope to inspect the health of your ear canal and eardrum, and show visitors their own eardrum on a TV. You may see some earwax but don’t worry, it's natural for everyone.
Our audiologists will perform a brief hearing screening in a small booth. Due to background noise in the building and time limitations, a full diagnostic test is not possible. However, if the audiologist is concerned about hearing, he/she will recommend you follow-up with an audiologist near you for a full diagnostic test .
The MAA booth is located at the intersection of Dan Patch and Cooper, see the blue star on this statefairmap.pdf. The Minnesota State Fair is always 12 days of fun, ending Labor Day. The 2021 MN State Fair dates are August 26 through September 6.
