Gift of Hearing Foundation Julie Tweed

Julie Tweed, R.N. B.S.N. The Learning Center for the Deaf

Ms. Tweed has been with The Learning Center for the Deaf in Framingham, Massachusetts for almost ten years where she provides assessment of physical and psychological needs of adolescents with depression, bi-polar and emotional disorders.

Her own experience of becoming a late-deafened adult whose life was changed by bilateral cochlear implants led her to volunteer for the Gift of Hearing Foundation.   

After receiving her BSN at Boston College, Julie nursed at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston and also provided visiting nurse services.  She is also a student of American Sign Language.

After several years of volunteer service, Ms. Tweed joined the Board of Directors of the Gift of Hearing Foundation in 2007.
