On the Importance of Grassroots Advocacy

On September 13th, 2018, I attended a campaign event for Mary Gay Scanlon, a congressional candidate for Pennsylvania’s 5th District, as a representative of the American Academy of Audiology. Prior to attending this event, I had been fortunate enough to attend advocacy training as a student and board member of the Student Academy of Audiology, but it wasn’t until I entered my role as a professional that I fully realized the importance of grassroots advocacy.
