The Helen Keller Foundation for Research and Education continues the work to which its namesake dedicated her life. Based on the legacy of Helen Keller, the Foundation strives to prevent blindness and deafness by advancing research and education. The Foundation aspires to be a leader in integrating sight, speech and hearing research with the greater biomedical research community, creating and coordinating a peer-reviewed, worldwide network of investigators and institutions. The goals of the Foundation are to integrate clinical and laboratory research to enhance the state of vision and hearing worldwide, to conduct a program of public education emphasizing hearing and vision awareness and the importance of medical research, and to develop funding resources and a public relations effort sufficient to support an effective global research and education program.
