the hearing health care industry. In addition to the great custom earmolds
that established Westone's reputation, the company also has a complete
range of hearing protection products, assistive listening devices, and
a wide range of accessories. Westone is the most complete source of hearing
health care products in the nation.
Westone Laboratories also reaches out to the hearing community. They
have funded several major projects of the Better Hearing Institute, including
the Spanish language edition of "Discover the World of Better Hearing".
They've also funded H.E.A.R.'s annual TV public service announcements
campaign with rock stars to promote hearing health among musicians and
young people (Westone PSA sponsorship helped to sponsor Lars Ulrich of
Metallica's H.E.A.R. PSA for national distribution), as a well as the
revision and reprinting of "Nerve Deafness and You".
Randy serves on the Advisory Board of H.E.A.R. and the Better Hearing
Institute, is a past President of the National Association of Earmold
Laboratories, an author, and a frequent speaker at industry conventions
and seminars. Randy's also a musician which gives him even a few extra
chips on his side of the table as far as H.E.A.R. is concerned. People
like Randy Morgan take a positive approach to life. They believe in working
hard, having fun, and giving back to the community. We're proud to have
Randy as our V.I.P. for April. He's truly one of the good guys.
