Initiatives

ATA’s primary initiatives are in the areas of education, advocacy, research and support. Here we offer a brief summary of ATA’s current programmatic initiatives.

Join Us

Join ATA, the nation’s largest nonprofit organization for tinnitus patients. Get valuable benefits and support our mission to silence tinnitus.

Education

ATA helps patients and their allies better understand tinnitus, its causes, and the currently available management options that can minimize its impact. We do this by providing the best, most scientifically-grounded information on tinnitus. ATA also works to educate healthcare providers about tinnitus, in order to improve patient access to quality tinnitus management services.

Advocacy

ATA is a vocal advocate for a patient community that needs to be heard. We work to increase public awareness of the condition and build support for improved patient support systems. ATA uses its national standing to address barriers in patient care and encourage increased federal funding for tinnitus research.

Research

ATA is one of very few organizations that funds advanced, independent tinnitus research. ATA supports cutting-edge science, with targeted, annual research grants to innovative and promising projects. Over the last 35 years, we have contributed nearly $6 million to the search for a cure.

Support

Compassion for people with tinnitus is at the foundation of everything we do. ATA strives to be a trusted and helpful resource for tinnitus patients. Through our programs and interaction with patients, we are building a strong, mutually-supportive and active patient community, across the country and around the world.

ATA will continue to provide these programmatic services until a definitive cure for tinnitus is found and all patients have access to the best medical treatment for their condition.
