The Boards of the American Academy of Audiology and the American Academy of Audiology Foundation recognize that our membership is dealing with myriad challenges as a result of the coronavirus.

Both boards want to let our membership know that no one is facing these challenges alone. Together, we will come through a difficult time stronger than ever.
