Let Me Hear from You
AudiologyNOW! 2013—A Lot of Educational Opportunities and A Lot of Fun!
Greetings from Anaheim! What a busy and energetic month this will be, beginning with AudiologyNOW! 2013 (AN!13). Some of us are already in Anaheim, others on their way, yet others holding down the fort at work. For those unable to come to Anaheim, we hope you'll join us virtually, or after the fact for a few events.
General Assembly will hold a celebration of the past, a look at the present, and a taste of the future. A portion of the General Assembly will be available for you to review later online. Join us for a blast from the past that you wont want to miss. A link will be available post-convention for sharing that special memory. We will also feature an Audiology Talk show podcast with host John Coverstone, myself, and president-elect, Bettie Borton.
There are three endowed lectureships at AN!13 that are available at no charge live or post-convention through eAudiology. You can obtain up to .75 CEUs from your office or home when you view these outstanding lectures. Whether you were unable to attend AN!13 or missed these lectures while attending other AN!13 sessions, you have another chance to get continuing education credit. Learn more about each lecture through the links below.
- Friday Morning
Marion Downs Lecture in Pediatric Audiology (10:00-11:30 am PT): Richard C. Seewald, PhD, will present A Retrospective on the Development of a Science-Based Approach to Pediatric Hearing-Aid FittingWhat a Difference 40 Years Can Make! (.15 CEUs). Funded with a grant from The Oticon Foundation.

- Saturday Morning
Improving Patient Care Through Innovation in Workplace Management Lecture (8:00-11:30 am PT): The Impact of Patient Experience Data Collection on Patient Satisfaction in an Evolving Reimbursement Climate (.3 CEUs) will be presented by Francis A. Fullam, MA; Briana J. Jegier, PhD; and Keri Kwarta, AuD, of Rush University Medical Center. Funded with a grant from Phonak LLC .
We can't take you live to the exhibit area, but can direct you to our Audiology Solutions Network for suppliers, products, events, video, case studies, and more! So youre virtually there.
Finally, the week of April 21 is National Volunteer Week. Use that event as a reminder to send in an Academy Volunteer form. Three of the nine members of each committee rotate off each year and committee chairs will select replacements for these members between now and the start of the committee year on July 1. Don't have time to volunteer this year? Why not volunteer through your support of the AAA Foundation and the PAC. Think of a foundation donation as a pay it forward gesture for the fantastic endowed lectures (and multitude of other opportunities AAAF brings to you each year). And the PAC donation, well that one speaks for itself by ensuring we have a voice at the table.
Safe travels to and from Anaheim if you're able to join us at AN!13. If not, I hope you'll join us virtually through the opportunities identified above.
