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."

Over the course of our careers, we are asked many times why we do what we do—sometimes we even ask ourselves that question. While there is a myriad of answers, some individuals have a personal experience with audiology that brought them to this profession. More and more students are entering the profession with hearing loss, and are excited for what the future has in store.
