The future of audiology looks bright, what a great profession! That statement is as true today as it was in 1988 when the Academy was founded. Challenges and changes face us, but who better to decide our professional path than fellow audiologists?
As an audiologist in the U.S. Air Force for 24 years and now working with the Department of Veterans Affairs, I have been part of a system that trains and utilizes audiology assistants to maximize the efficiency of the audiologist. I have also witnessed direct access, and how efficient and effective it can be for patients and staff. These viable concepts will become a reality across audiology settings as the Academy uses the Preferred Futures as our roadmap to the future. The Academy Board will continue to lead the way to ensure audiology’s future continues to be what we choose it to be!
It would truly be my honor to serve you as a board member to guide the Academy forward on these and related professional issues. The board depends on input from the membership, and I would be happy to listen to your opinions and ideas. Thank you for your vote.
