History of the center

The Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health is based in the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and is closely affiliated and co-located with both the Johns Hopkins Center on Aging and Health and the Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology, and Clinical Research. The Center was launched in 2018 with more than $20 million in existing grant funding from the National Institutes of Health focused on Center-mission areas, a $10 million gift from Cochlear Ltd. and other philanthropic funding. The Center draws on the expertise of faculty members and trainees from a broad array of disciplines in order to advance the mission areas of the Center, in the U.S. and globally.
