Indiana Lions Speech and Hearing has established the Miyamoto Fellowship to honor Lions
and others for their dedication to their Lions Club, to Lions Club International, and to those
in need in their communities and around the world. Dr. Richard T. Miyamoto is Chairman of
the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the Indiana University
School of Medicine. At Riley Hospital for Children, he is Medical Director of Audiology and
In the 1980's, a grant from Speech and Hearing was provided to Riley Hospital and Dr.
Miyamoto to expand the use of cochlear implants for children. Dr. Miyamoto's pioneering
work has been recognized around the world, and he continues his close relationship with the
Lions of Indiana.
A handsome plaque had been designed to honor the recipients of the Miyamoto Fellowship.
For a $500 donation to Indiana Lions Speech and Hearing, Inc., within a two-year period,
one plaque may be ordered in the recipient's name to be presented by the donor Lion or
Lions Club. Please contact any Indiana Lions Speech and Hearing trustee in your district for
information or to order a plaque.
