IHF was founded in 1984 by Dr. Michael Paparella to help serve those in need worldwide. IHF is dedicated to learning more about hearing problems and cures, and to educating doctors around the world about hearing loss. IHF has sponsored teams of doctors that have traveled to Senegal, Peru, Brazil, Chile and Cuba. These teams have volunteered their time and services doing operations, treating patients in clinics and teaching local doctors about modern day treatments for ear disease.
