Academy Research Conference (ARC) 2017
Pediatrics: Advancements in Assessment and Rehabilitation
April 5, 2017, JW Marriott Indianapolis
Chair: Anne Marie Tharpe, PhD
Our ability to identify, diagnose, and treat infants and children with hearing loss has improved significantly over the last decade as a result of enhanced understanding of developmental and biological mechanisms, and technological advances. These important elements in the hearing healthcare of children will be examined at ARC, a one-day translational research conference.
Leading researchers whose work has informed our clinical practice will present their latest findings.
