SAA SPOTLIGHT | Audiologists with Hearing Loss: What We Bring to the Table

"So what do you do?" I paused and thought of several different responses that were possible. I responded with a smile and three simple words, "I change lives."

More and more students are entering the profession with hearing loss, and are excited for what the future has in store.
